challenge piece


This is a small piece I made for yahoo group called Fabric-olics. We were sent a piece of fabric/paper, 3 buttons & some yarn & had to use all in any project.
I started by separating the material into 3 layers then folding & stitching it with no great plans. It eventually became the roof & door of a chicken coop. When we on holidays in France there was a gorgeous rooster roaming the grounds. He had the most gorgeous colours- oranges & blue. He became my inspiration. I used a small free embroidery design from needlepassion embroidery. The wire for the fence is the threads from the window on a bag of potatoes. The yarn is couched on the building & under the buttons. It was fun to work on this piece.
