Thank You Hannah (Chicken Willow) for my custom made, one of a kind, made from scraps... Drum roll please..
Chicken and egg pin cushion set.
My request was short and simple... I Would love anything purple or up cycled from scraps.
Hannah hit the nail on the head and everything about my pin cushions is special, right down to the hand painted gift wrapping by her children.
Which came first the chicken or the egg?
In this case Hannah made the chicken first using felt scraps from her children's craft box, calico and brown material and a gorgeous purple yarn sent from Ireland.
She wasn't sure if sticking pins in her was a good idea. She solved that problem and made an egg using tiny pieces of purple scraps *giggles* the hexagons are seriously tiny. Denim from a pair of favourite jeans and the egg cup is super special as it was a left over from her wedding day. Awwww.
She also used scrap fabric to fill the egg.
I am happy to report that the egg isn't too hard for the pins at all.
Dory likes chicken too.
Don't worry no chickens were harmed during this photo shoot!!
You can never have enough photo's of your new favourite pin cushions!!
