I used chickens/hens/eggs as my theme and created a quick, practical item which I have actually required for some time - a doorstop for my sewing room.
Wadding was used as the template
Gingham was stitched around this, along with an appliqued patch. Then I added felt details.
Both sides are identical. They were over-stitched together and the piece was stuffed with buckwheat. Here she is in situ, doing a lovely job : )
To complete the theme, I made these cute little egg-cosies.
