Cock-a-doodle-doo......

Rooster textile head by ohmisterfinch
Had a dream about a rooster the other night as you do and the idea of making one stuck with me. This is the first one from the pattern, don't know if Ill make anymore as not really done anything farm-y before so we will have to see.
I like him and his little beady eyes.
I have some red velvet somewhere that would be nice for crests and the wobbly bits that hang under his beak.
Do they have a name the wobbly bits?

  1. The wobbly thing underneath is a wattle, I think? Nice work!

  2. This is a very cool design and the bits of red would really make it super special. I hope you do more... a lot of people collect farm/chickens etc... and I think you would find many interested buyers for them. Especially with your fabulous hand-made touch!

  3. yes he's gorgeous and would look even more stunning with wattles - you'll be on to a successful 'line' if you make more of them.

  4. Looks a bit pale, maybe 'cos of the beheading LOL!
    It looks great, though like you say, some nice red velvet would make his comb and wobbly wattle look more natural.
    I wonder what it means to dream of Roosters?

    Have a great week,
