I've been doing some sewing

I was able to spend some time in the sewing room doing something I
love to do this week.
I love sewing dolls and animals.
I found this vintage pattern at the thrift store and
some cloth scraps, too.
I made these 2 chickens.
(the pins are holding the fabric glue wings in place)
(I know how to take shortcuts! lol)
I usually make two of most things because I can just as easily make another one
while I am doing the first one.
And I usually have an opportunity to sell the other one.
I bought a bag of scraps that were mostly red & white and in it
I found this ticking and toile so of course I had to make the pigs, too.
I worked 3 days at the store and still have Friday to work there.
I do seamstress work on the side
and I've been taking in ladies pants and
letting out mens dress pants this week also.
I do that for money, I do this for fun!!


  1. Very cute!!! How neat to make 2 instead of just one.

  2. Very nice! I love the chickens :D

  3. I really love these, especially the
    darling little piggies. You should
    be able to sell them quickly.

  4. Donna,
    I followed a bunny trail and ended up here and I'm so glad I did. How beautiful are your fabric creations! And what a refreshing site you have here.

  5. pigs and chickens are so sweet, yours are great!

    I used to dabble with alterations for friends, but some were so picky or unreasonable, I rarely do anymore.
    Bless you for doing it

  6. Hi Donna,
    I love your chickens and those pigs are the cutest ever. I love the toile fabric and the ticking. You are a very talented lady and you are the sweetest ever!

  10. My favorites are the pigs! I would be scared to do alterations. I'd be sure to mess something up. You are a good seamstress!
