Inspired by vintage glass and ceramic "chicken-on-a-nest" serving wear, Henny Penny is still a thoroughly modern chicken. Stitched entirely in a backstitch, this pattern is very first-time stitcher friendly.
Your friends and family will undoubtedly be very impressed by your finished creation. Be prepared for adulation - and possibly a little envy too. (You deserve it!)

All of Hook, Line & Tinker’s embroidery illustrations are original and designed by me. Each illustration is repeatedly rendered through the craft of hand embroidery using a variety of basic stitches to build texture and a pleasing design. The pattern evolves with each hand rendering with attention to texture and technique. Through this process, instructions for completing each design are developed. The 100% cotton fabric is cut and prepared by hand, and all finalized patterns are printed onto the fabric in the studio using inks that maintain their integrity during the stitching process. Each kit is packed by hand. Packaging is designed to be lightweight and compact to reduce environmental impacts via shipping, and paper, including recycled paper, have been used rather than single use plastics.
