Cute and Fun Review by Laurie

These turned out nice and didn't take long to get together. The directions are clear and concise. I do recommend the round paper clips if you can find them, but bending the wire turned out to be kind of fun. I decided to shape them more like three pronged chicken feet and that turned out ok too. I liked them so much I made some more this time using the bird die for the Go Baby quilt cutter and also embroidered them before putting them together. Lots of fun and no need to go out and buy anything except this very reasonably priced pattern. Since it's a very scrap happy little project.
