Chicken Props Done!









Here are pictures of the props I made for my chicken story time. I used Irene Duquette's Cool Chicken pattern, Yvonne Boucher's Rooster pattern in her Farmyard Finger Puppets' series, and an egg using a pattern from Crafting Traditions magazine. I made a couple of changes to Yvonne's pattern: I didn't join the rounds. Instead, I used a stitch marker. I crocheted the comb directly to the puppet's head as opposed to sewing on a separate piece.

Ok, now you did it! Because of your terrific blog (I love the finger puppets!!!), I'll be starting mine too! You did a great job both crocheting and doing your blog. And congrats on the grandbaby!!! Aren't grandkids the best?? I have 13 of them, and I love each and every one of them so very much. I think they're our rewards for surviving raising our kids. Keep up the great work! I only hope my blog looks half as neat as yours does!
