Great tutorial, easy to follow. Thanks for sharing your chipper chicken!

Thank you again for the pattern! I made four of these yesterday, and it was so easy and fun. I even made one with poker themed fabric for my husband, and he's going to use it as his mascot on poker night. Smiley I'll post pictures just as soon as I get my camera working again.

i thought i would make cat toys out of this pattern. i stuffed mine wiht catnip and batting.

the feet are backwards because, though i was very careful to follow the directions, the seams didn't line up nicely. when i corrected that, the beak and comb ended up backwards. (then the seams didn't line up anyway; go figure)

but that's ok. my Shermy doesn't mind. he's a thoughtful cat.

he likes it anyway.

Actually if you do reverse the positions of the beak and comb you have the option of having tail feathers.  Cut a large triangle (about 2 1/2 inches wide) and insert it into the seam that you squish together and sew it into that seam.  I knew something looked wonky when I positioned my beak and comb originally.  Anyway, either way is fine, just thought I would throw that out there.  Hope that wasn't toooooo confusing.

Here are the ones I made. I still haven't decided if I want to put eyes on them.
The one on the end came out backwards, and I really can't figure out how...

A closeup of the poker one - DH keeps forgetting to take it with him. Maybe that's why he hasn't won lately!

Thanks again for the pattern - it was so much fun!
