I'm not much of a cook, so I don't think I could prepare a stuffed bird you could eat. But a knit one? That, I can do.
A little while ago, I made Henrietta as a gift for my Grandmother's birthday. I liked that chicken so much, I had to make another for myself. As striking as the original color scheme was, it wasn't a great match for my kitchen, so I made one with different colors. I named this chicken Babs, in honor of the knitting chicken from the movie Chicken Run.
I love that this project serves as its own knitting basket a few inches into the body. I could stuff my yarns right in there.
And then I stuffed the chicken with wads of socks in order to steam block it.
For the final stuffing process, I put a layer of polyfill on the bottom before pouring in a bunch of poly pellets. I did that with Henrietta too, and it helped prevent the pellets from coming out. After that, it's more and more polyfill...then voila!
