A little girl we know is having surgery soon, so I've started gathering a few things to send her. First up, a pretty spring chicken using this pattern from Martha Stewart.
Instead of using a felted sweater, I used wool felt I'd hand-dyed to a soft tangerine orange color, as well as some contrasting fabric in a cheery print. It's such a quick and easy project that I may sew some more, 'cause really, who doesn't love a small chicken?
I'd also like to do the pig pattern featured on the MS site sometime, too.
