A gorgeous naive style fabric postcard featuring two little chickens!

I was inspired by the chicken wire background fabric, and decided to make a scene featuring two newly hatched chicks on a patch of ground in their run.

I fused the background fabric to the stiff interfacing, then added the fabric for the dirt and stitched on some tufts of grass in various colors. I then fused the chickens to the background, appliqued around them in two varieties of blanket stitch, added and appliqued their wings, then stitched their legs and eyes.

The backing fabric is a plain calico so it can be written on for mailing, if required.

Finally, I finished the edges with a tight satin stitch in rayon thread -- dark brown for the earth section and a bone color to match the rest of the card.

Fabric protector has been applied.

Suitable for framing.

Dimensions: 4 x 6 in (11 x 15 cm)

Made in a smoke-free, pet-free, and child-free home.
