triangular pyramid style pincushion that looks like a chicken

[Sewing] Chicken Dumping Pincushion

I made pincushions with some cluckin' style

Saw some triangular chicken patterns that were super cute, so I made one to be used as a pincushion. You can find links to tutorials at the bottom of this post.

My chicken stands at about 2.75″ tall.

I used:

  • 5″ x 2.5″ rectangular strip of fabric
  • Pieces of felt* for the beak, comb, and wattle
  • Rice for filling
  • I nearly went with cotton flannel instead of felt, but the flannel I have seemed a little too flimsy and likely to fray, so I didn’t.
