Hello! I have been working on a fun sewing case for a silent auction my quilt guild is having in June. We are supposed to make something that is chicken related, as the theme of the luncheon is "Hen Party". I made a couple chicken tea towels first - you can see them in this post here. Then I found a pattern for a sewing case that is all about chickens in a Primitive Quilts magazine I subscribe to. The pattern is Yard Birds on pages 80-84 of the Fall 2012 issue. This turned out so cute, I'm afraid I'll have to make another one for the auction - there's no way I'm giving this one away!
Here is a picture of the outside of the case, when it's all folded up. The rooster, hen and chicks are cut from felted wool that I had in my stash. They are whipstitched down onto the white wool background, and then detailing is added with embroidery.
