It's ready! My chicken doorstop tutorial turned out to be so long that I thought it needed a page of it's own - there it is, at the top of the screen. Or click HERE.
PS I think I mentioned before that I saw a pattern for a mini chicken HERE. My doorstop evolved from that design but I've made it much bigger, it "faces" the other way, the wattle is made from cord, the shape is slightly different etc etc. You're more than welcome to use my version but please post a link back to me. Thankyou.
PPS I've now found out how to add a downloadable PDF, so when I get chance, I'll sketch out the basics and upload it.
