Mama Hen pillowcase


When i saw this fabric I had to buy a few yards. I wasn't sure what to do with it, but you know when you see a certain fabric, yarn, etc., and you know you just have to buy it even though you have not a clue what it will become.

The pattern seems like it would be at home in the kitchen, but being a poly/cotton blend it is not absorbent. (I tested it.) I thought about maybe a tablecloth, but I wanted to make it as a gift and did not have her table measurements. So, after finding some perfectly complementary orange gingham fabric, I decided to use a yard to make a pillowcase. I can't believe how perfect the gingham matches - you can see there is orange gingham in the chicken pattern itself.

Please pardon the creases/wrinkles.

It says "mother hen and her chicks."

Check out these chicks!! So cute and silly.

I like this one. He's like "i'm cute and i know it."
