Chicken Apron FREE Sewing Tutorial

Chicken Apron FREE Sewing Tutorial

Yes, chickens do wear aprons! Just ask your friends who keep poultry in their backyards – if they don’t already have these for their feathered friends, they’ll want you to make some! These bib-like garments – also known as hen saddles – cover their backs and protect them from being injured and/or having their feathers pulled out. Make them in shades to match the fowls’ feathers, or have fun with bright novelty prints and trims for highly-visible garments that prevent wayward chickies from blending into the scenery. Simple to make, chicken aprons are a unique gift for your favorite backyard poultry farmer. You could even use them to barter for fresh eggs!

What you'll need:

  • 1/4 yard of fabric or 2 fat quarters
  • Batting or fusible fleece
  • 10-1/2″ of 1/4″-wide elastic
  • Rick-rack or other trims, optional

Bizzare. Never heard of it.
My next door neighbor has chickens and I never seen his chickens with that, I feel his chickens are left out, poor things. I’m going to have to tell him about this.
