Do you have a lot of fabric scraps? This is your project then. I recommend using stronger interfacing for the ears, something you’d use for a handbag, to keep them up longer.

This is a very funny chicken softie. The pieces a very large so it’s very easy and quick to make. It makes a great gift all year round too.
