It has been pointed out that there is little use for a rooster without at least one hen, so here she is. She may be smaller than the guy who thinks he rules the roost, but we all know where the real power lies. The wing that rocks the nest is the wing that rules the world!

Back when I was a kid I loved my little chickens, but could not have imagined that my painted versions of Ferdinand and Isabella would be featured in "Cottages and Bungalows" magazine (September 2013, page 14).

This listing is for the hen pillow, shown in first photo. (Rooster listed separately.)

Isabella is featured on a pillow that measures 20” x 20” by 5” thick, and because the fabric is all-weather, this pillow is eminently suited for your deck or patio as well as your dining banquette. Nontoxic textile paints are permanent and will not flake or fade, no matter how many pillow fights the kids might get into. Handpainted one at a time; not a transfer, reproduction, decal or reprint.

Isabella looks pretty good with her companion rooster, Ferdinand, found in this shop. Designed, painted, sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted on a little island in Washington State. Enjoy!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to high shipping costs, customers outside of North America will receive COVERS ONLY.
