So my plan this year is to become more comfortable with my new sewing machine, I really haven’t come to grips with it at all since I bought it last year to replace my tired Janome. I went for a limited edition Bernina – and while it looks really pretty I have barely used it.
So when I saw these fun Juggling Chooks I decided they were the perfect project to get me going. Lots of repetition and no need to change the cotton!
I have three grandsons, so I had to make 9 of these little pillows. Each one is an individual as you can see (no two are alike).
And finally all nine juggling chooks. I think to save arguments the boys will get one of each colour.
To make your own juggling chooks, I have added the link below. I found all the bits for my chooks in my craftroom and kitchen. I filled the chooks with a little piece of polyester stuffing and then added about quarter of a cup of rice (brown of course). They require only a piece of cotton fabric and some felt for the beak, comb and wattle.
You’ll have a lot of fun making these. Even my husband has been practising his juggling to no avail), and I’m not much better myself. I hope the boys enjoy them.
a great little craft project from – Red Ted Art –
Have a great day
