… meet Stanley the chicken doorstop …
If you have been with us for a while, you may remember Frank who is a winter chicken (or so he says)! He was getting a little bit lonely down on the Finca, so we decided to introduce him to his cousin Stanley.
Stanley is the epitome of chicken chic when it comes to doorstops. He makes people smile whenever they come through the door and has had lots of admiring glances. In fact, so much so, that we have had to make quite a few twin sisters and brothers for Stanley to give to our friends.
If you would like to make your own Stanley you can use this chicken doorstop free pattern:
I used some lovely tweed for his body and some furry felt for his comb and beak.
When he was all sewn up (except for a little hole on the bottom), I filled him with lentils and his head is filled with stuffing so that it will stand up straight.
One invisible seam later and voila! Stanley was born!
What colour will your chicken doorstop be?
