Lounge chooks

stuffed chook ginger blossom style

Chook #1 out of mainly Ginger Blossom fabrics. This chook is a gift for a friend. She doesn't read my blog or really blogs in general, so it's safe to post now. I made this bird at the annual Crafty Mamas craft retreat. I spent most of last weekend sewing and eating a lot of Malteasers and LAUGHING.

I didn't sew this bird at the retreat. I put it together and home and realised that I'd done most of the work, so might as well sew it up at home.

Our lounge chook was made to match the quilt for our lounge which is a copy of my friend, Milly's quilt.

I sewed the quilt top at the retreat.

The bird cushion is the Hello Birdie pattern by The Red Thread. Great little pattern for whipping up something very cute in a short amount of time. Thank you to Lisa at The Red Thread for giving this pattern to everyone who attended Sew It Together this year.

It looks perfect on your couch Sara. I'm still loving mine and it's a favorite on my couch during the cold weather.
