As a decoration or as an outdoor cushion, these easy-to-make linen hens come to personalize the kitchen, garden or living room for a very original country atmosphere.
- raw linen fabric (Linen Sewing)
- matching thick sewing thread and plait
- padding wadding
- a bag of sand or rice
- red and black textile painting (Pébéo)
Enlarge and cut the templates. Post on the linen 2 times the pattern of the sides and wings and 1 time that of the belly. Cut out the pieces with 0.5 cm seam allowance.
Apply the wings to the sides by creating a small clip and sew them to the point of overlocking, stuffing them a little. Pin and sew the belly at the sides, the A point, the middle of the B-shaped round. Layer the sides right side up and sew them from A to B, 0.5 cm from the edge. Leave an opening of 10 cm.
Go back, place a bag of sand or rice in the bottom and fill in the filling. Close the slotted aperture. Cut an oval 6 cm long to make the ridge. Thread a strand at the center point in the center of the room, scrape the fabric, and then coat it with red paint.
Sew the crest on the head. Paint the eye in black. Cut a strip of 20 x 6 cm into the flax, pass a strand in the middle in the length, scrape the fabric and sew it at the bottom of the back to figure the tail.
