Oh For the Love of Chickens!

Finally, I had some spare time to make something out of the "Lil Plain Jane" fabric that I won at the last sewmamasew.com give-a-way.
I love chickens and I love fabric, so it only made sense that the two should be together.

What is it you ask? hmmmmm, I've asked myself the same thing..........a wall hanging!? ya sure thats it. Too small to be anything else. What am I going to do with it you ask? Well I thought about painting an entire room red and white just so I could hang this in it. Where I would lock the door and no-one would be allowed in except maybe a pizza delivery guy, oh and my mother cuz she's that special.

But, I have no idea what I am going to do with it. I thought about maybe auctioning it off at my son's senior auction for school this fall. That is if I can pry it away from my youngest who would really love me to just give it to her

Its been very hot and sticky around here, so this strappy top that my cousin gave me got to budge to the front of the line at my sewing desk. The main problem was that it was too wide for me so I took it in on the sides. Then I used the trimmed off scraps to make a ruffle for the front.
I cut the scraps in strips. No measureing just guessing. Stuck the little bugger under my machine on a baste length stitch and then scrunched it up to make a ruffle.

I Hand stitch the ruffle on and now a have a cute new top
