Those are so awesome!  What a great tradition your family has!  I twentieth the request of a tut!  Those would be great for handing out gift packs.  Baby catalogs for a baby shower, art supply catalogs for crafting materials, etc.

I'm so impressed with that!  I dabbled with a similar felt thing as a gift and it's SOOOO simplistic, almost child-like, compared to yours!   The opening door!  The pink "button"!   I'm bookmarking this, so I'll have a nice reference just in case I ever want to try again.  What's odd is that I also made a raccoon thing for someone for Christmas, but it's a voodoo doll, because they DO NOT like raccoons.  This stocking is like the alternative universe version of some of my projects!

Those are simply smashing!  Very professional looking.  I bet those who received them will be reusing them for years!

Thanks you guys!

I'm not a huge fan of chickens myself, but I am a huge fan of these friends.

KarenLouiseM: I remember seeing your awesome chicken-feet chairs!  I was so envious that you had those feet, which I dont' think Ikea sells anymore.

Great execution of a clever idea!  I've been making voodoo dolls (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=210006.msg2250561#msg2250561 & http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=216068.msg2323503#msg2323503), but it never occurred to me to make myself into a voodoo doll!  Bookmarked!  The Xs over your eyes are brilliant!

What an awesome idea!  I love the way you've displayed them with the curtains - very clever.

Wow!  Thanks everyone!  Hopefully they will like it, too.  I don't know that I'd embroider on felt again... at least not w/o a stabilizer.  Eesh.

Some friends of mine have a whole bunch of chickens of various kinds that they are quite fond of.  I saw a wall sculpture thingy kind of like this that was out of my budget, but couldn't get out of my head as a gift for these friends.  So, I decided to reinterpret the idea in craft felt.



The only things that aren't felt are the chicks' beaks, eyes, combs, the loose feathers and the dust kicked up by the pick up.  Those are hand embroidered with DMC embroidery floss, 2-3 strands, if I remember correctly.  All the felt is machine sewn.  It's in an inexpensive frame; I just used spray adhesive to attach the finished product to the glass that came with the frame, trimmed the edges and put the frame back together.

Thanks for looking!

It scares me. 4-5 week, maybe?

I"m fascinated with all things buttons, but haven't ever really done anything with them (except a bracelet I made in 1985).  I love the monochromatic look and it never occured to me to paint them!  I was thinking you had to find a bunch the same color.  Duh!  Of course, multi-tones of a color is nice, but if you  needed more of a color you could just paint the ones you needed!  THANKS!  You're a problem solver!
