Kitchen Chicken

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, I think everyone needs a kitchen chicken don't you? I didn't have one (well one made from fabric) so I had to make me one! :) You know I'm so talented like that? Just kidding. :)
 The past few weeks I had to kinda take it easy so I went Pinteresting...a lot! I ran across this darling little kitchen chicken pattern and everything in me wanted to make one. So guess what? I did!
GALLINA PESO PUERTA
Here is the pattern but it's written in Portuguese but if you sew some it's pretty easy to put together. I did take each drawn part of the patten and enlarged each one it to fit it's own page. That way it was much bigger. I love the pretty colors she chose, don't you? I couldn't get the tail feathers on my kitchen chicken to flop like hers did.

 I know, I know, mine looks different than hers. Not as dainty looking as hers. I don't know why...well, my chicken's beak is bigger and turns up and hers turns down and I used bigger buttons for the eyes. But I think mine's kinda cute too.
 My little kitchen chicken has a pocket on both sides with a little embroidery and button flowers. The
 little pockets can hold recipes, really really really  old recipes.
 Or she can help measure out the correct amount of flour or sugar.
Or the pockets can hold tiny little spoons for safe keeping.
Or she can just sit and look pretty in my kitchen and be my kitchen chicken.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

She's A Lady

Well, she's all you'd ever want
She's the kind I like to flaunt and take to dinner
But she always knows her place
She's got style, she's got grace, she's a winner
She's a lady
Oh, whoa, whoa, she's a lady
Talkin' about that little lady
And the lady is mine
Well, she's never in the way
Always something nice to say, and what a blessin'
I can leave her on her own
Knowin' she's OK alone and there's no messin'
She's a lady
Oh, whoa, whoa, she's a lady
Talkin' about that little lady
And the lady is mine
Well, she never asks very much
And I don't refuse her
Always treat her with respect
I never would abuse her
What she's got is hard to find
And I don't want to lose her
Help me build a mountain
From a little pile of clay, hey hey hey
Well, she knows what I'm about
She can take what I dish out, and that's not easy
But she knows me through and through
And she knows just what to do and how to please me
She's a lady
Oh, whoa, whoa, she's a lady
Talkin' about that little lady
And the lady is mine
Yeah, yeah, yeah, she's a lady
Oh, whoa, whoa, she's a lady
Listen to me people she's a lady
Yeah yeah yeah yeah she's a lady
Whoa whoa whoa she's a lady
Talkin' about the little lady
whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
She's a lady
Yeah yeah yeah she's a lady
Whoa whoa lord, she's a lady
I can't live without that
She's a lady
Ooh ooh she's a lady

  13. So cute! When I first saw the photo, I thought it was a door stop. I used to have one that looked much like this with a brick in it, and it was used as a door stop. Yours is much cuter and more practical, and I love the idea of the spoons or the recipe cards.

  15. Super cute! I used to make a lot of soft sculpture animals from patterns I would buy at a local store. I kept them too! I enlarged a bunny pattern and made one big enough to set in a chair like a child. I sold them at a store- funny thing- I didn't make much for me!

  16. Hi Shelia, oh what a darling project and such a cute little chicken. Love it and thank you for sharing the pattern. You are so talented and I love how this looks with the little cards peeking out. The skies the limit with the fabrics one can use. How special sitting on the counter. Love it.
    Hugs

  20. I love your chicken, especially the quirky tail!! Well done!! And your jadeite measuring cups are so special!!

  21. Your chicken is so cute. I think it's even cuter than the original. The fact that blue is my favorite color has nothing to do with it.

  22. Dear one..your tail feather are fine. I think you just put too much stuffing into them. Pull a bit out and they should shape nicely. Of course the fabric could also be a bit stiff. Maybe rubbing it between your palms would have softened it up...but what do I know. I've never made a chicken..or even owned a real one..and mine are all glass..OR wood...no fabric ones. She is very sweet!! And ..yes..you are very clever in the sewing department..NO doubt about it..and you play the piano better than I do. How do I know? Because everyone plays better than I do. :)
