This was not my first choice to make but with time getting on I had to compromise.  The bag is huge (18 inchs square and 4 inchs wide), come on girls lets face it the bigger the bag the more shopping we can do  Cheesy.  Living on acreage and with lots of chooks we have heaps of these woven plastic feed bags and this was my inspiration.

Behold the Big Bag Chook (front)

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

That is great! I grew up on a farm and had tons of those feed sacks too, what a strong durable material.  Love the chick pic!
