Little Black Peep - in memoriam

I was asked to make a little black peep...in memory of sweet little Spot who was carried away by a hawk, and this is the result. The body fabric is a fluffy wool sweater with trim cut off another silky sweater. The eyes are small white beads that I painted with iridescent paint...and the feet. I loved making these chicken feet.  For that reason alone, I will be making more chickens!   

A little trim and some special packaging and this birdie is ready to fly the coop!
