Sam the Chicken

My friend Sam was the inspiration behind my chicken crafts. Or more precisely, his love for chickens and his cute little plastic chicken toys have raised my appreciation of Things Chicken. They are lovely beasts–quirky and charming.

Sam (the chicken above, not my friend Sam) is made from UPS-brown felt and stands on pencil-yellow chenille stem legs. His comb, wattle and beak are made from vintage felt. Sam the person has neither comb, nor wattle nor beak. He has sideburns.
