Chicken DoorStop

I finished my Chicken Doorstop. If you recall I have one that my mother in law gave me back in the 70's and I seen a picture of a new one in a magazine. You know me I had to have the pattern.
I finally got the pattern and finished making it yesterday.
My neighbor came walking in as I was putting the finishing touches on it and she claimed it. LOL
Here is a picture of the new one and my old one. The older is is slightly larger and beat up. Check out that fabric talk about dating my myself. They both have bricks in the bottom.
