Biker Chick

I spent most of yesterday and today working on a chicken pattern that I turned into a biker chick for a girlfriend's birthday coming up. I got the chicken pattern from Sew Mama Sew! It was a spring chicken and I just dressed it up a bit to make it a biker chick. I have a chain around it's neck holding a sign that says Biker Chick. I used leather for the sign. Then I made a hat out of a fake black leather. It probably looks more like a granny hat but she's a granny too so that is ok! Now I am making a small rag quilt for the chick to sit on. I found the fabric on the clearance rack at Joann's for $2 a yard. I bought what was left, 1.6 yards and I have some orange here at home that I will add to it. I am hoping to get that cut out tonight so that I can whip it together over the next few days.

I have to go back to work tomorrow. Sad face! I do enjoy teaching but I also love being home and just creating. I made 4 quilt tops plus a paper quilt while I was home so I wasn't just sitting around. I did get a chance to rest quite a bit, so hopefully I will be all ready to handle 11 year olds again!!!!

I am going to work on getting pictures up in the next few posts. I know how much I like to go to other blogs and see pictures so that is my goal for my blog, lots of pictures!!

I hope everyone has a great start to the new year.
