I like big quilts and I cannot lie!

Ty Cyw (Cyw's House) is a Welsh-language kids program that my niece is really into - it's a bunch of random cartoon animals and token human Gareth all living in a house shaped like an egg.  (I suck at Welsh, despite having the most ridiculously Welsh name.)  It's her third birthday in a couple of days, so I made her a Cyw pillow (Cyw is the name of the chicken):



I used a sort of stretchy white velvety stuff for the body, plus some weird red metallicy stuff for the wattle and comb and some gold spandex for the beak and legs.  And sequins for the freckles.  (Why does a chicken have freckles?  WHY?!)


The back is some cuddly pink and yellow flannel:


For reference, the original image is this:

I have never seen the cartoon but your pillow is adorable! I agree that chicken freckles is a bit odd lol.

Thank you!  I would honestly die of shock if anyone here actually knew the show, to be fair.  Smiley

Thanks AIMR!  I thought it'd be fun to go to town with it and make it a bit glitzy.  Smiley

Wow, that's really great! They really do look alike and I'm sure your niece will love the different textures you used. I also really love the quilting in the background. This shows again how even fairly random quilting (although I know it's quite hard to achieve that perfect doodling look!) will make a piece look so much better. I like the distinction you make between the air and the grass.

Thanks everyone!  I gave it to her today and it did seem to go down well, which makes it all worthwhile.  She likes plenty of pillows to cuddle and flop about on.  Smiley

@Immaculata:  I was kind of "lucky" that the blue fabric for the sky had doodles printed on it, so for that bit I just followed the lines.  Smiley  (I was *also* lucky that my big sewing machine behaved despite me not having used it for a while - I was really worried she'd sulk after being neglected!)

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
