      If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.

      For example, if you want to hire someone to sew those pillows, or if you want to have the design printed on fabric that you sew into pillows, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-)

        Could I love these fun chicken’s any more than I do? Nah, they are awesome! You will find yourself smiling with every one you create. As the happy owner of a real life flock of 10, I am having great fun designing each chicken to represent the personality of one of my girls!


        once again, I love them all but my favourites are with the grid and the whole piece with chicken sounds. Can't wait to seethe worms
