Tilda_chicken_3_large

Description

I love the Tilda gift designs and I made this chicken for a friend who keeps chickens in her garden. Working with linen is such a pleasure and I really enjoyed making it. Turning the tubes for the legs and the straps on the dungarees is a bit fiddly but all in all quite simple to make.

      Thank you Schnui. My Finnish friend calls them chooks too. Never heard that before. Much cuter than chicken! :-)
