Few weeks ago I won a little chicken-pincushion. In spite of Carrot Leaf’s persisting flight* from US, Kentucky to me to Essen, Germany (… or maybe around and around and around the whole wide world…) I want to introduce to you the chickens I sewed to give one of them away to the lucky winner.
All chicken pincushions I made are between 3″ and 4″.
First Chicken I made was a log-cabin-one. I called it Big Martha – it was the first one I made month ago. But now she would like to go on a journey… so if you like her, how would you name that little chicken?

Next chicken I made was a little one in chenille technique…
Also I made a chicken out of Japanese fabrics. I baught this wonderful fabrics few month ago on a local fabric market – but now I used it first time to make this little chicken:

Last but not least I designed a chicken with scrappy appliques and eyes out of small freshwater perls for you:

And this is where you come in: If you would like to win one of these chickens all you need to do is:
1. Agree to make another chicken and give it away on your blog within 4 weeks of receiving your prize. Include a link back to ohsewtempting.wordpress.com so that all the chickens can appear in her Chicken Run Gallery which will include a link to your blog if you have one. Please let Avis at ohsewtempting.wordpress.com know about every chicken that is hatched. A tutorial to make a chicken pincushion you can find here at Carla’s Granny Maud’s Girl blog.
2. Leave a comment below to say what you would like to call your preferred chicken, which country it would be going to and why it would feel at home there.
The chickens are made from small scraps of fabric and a small amount of stuffing. They are stuffed with polyester batting. Please do not stuff your giveaway chicken with foodstuff or plant material as it may not be allowed into the country you are sending to. It is also possible to send the chicken without stuffing.
This giveaway is open to everyone in the whole wide world until the end of 30th November (local time) and will be drawn using a random number generator. Numbers will be allocated in the order that comments are received.
