Long time, No Blog!

Hello there, everyone!!!

I've had so much going on - family wise - that I've neglected my Fuzzy Blog for the last few months! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE to blog, so I will hopefully get back to it sooner rather than later! Hope that everyone had a GREAT Summer and that you are all now getting excited about FALL and all of the pretty colors that are about to pop out everywhere! I LOVE FALL!!!!

I'll be back on soon!

New Dress Alert!!!

Here are 2 new dresses! Last Sunday evening I posted 2 dresses that have since become 1 of a kind (since I couldn't find any more of that fabric with which to create replicas!). I'm thinking about just making these "Sunday Auction Specials" one of a kinds. A lot of people like the fact that their child is wearing something that no one else has, so we'll see how this works!
Here is the most vibrantly colored Summer Dress! It's 20" long and would be adorable on your little 2 year old or on your older little girl as a really cute top over shorts! I LOVE the citrus colors on this and think of warm weather when I look at it! Thank the Lord for Summer weather!

Here is one of the cutest and colorful floral patterns I've seen in a while! There are so many colors going on in this one, that you could pair this dress/top with any number of little shorts! It is 15" long and would make the PERFECT top for your 4-6 year old! So girly and whimsical!

BOTH of these dresses are listed on Ebay in 7-day Auctions! Hop on over to to check them out and to see all of the other dresses and shorts that are listed!!!

REALLY Excited! Clothing Labels!!!

Mark "Googled" about clothing labels and found these sheets of printable cloth for our ink jet printer! He once again designed these for me, then we cut one off, and washed it...dried it.....ironed it.....sewed it into something....washed it still looked really good and like we hadn't done anything at all to it! I'm hoping that they hold up to repeated washings like they are supposed to! Next item on my list is to order some clothing labels to sew on the OUTSIDE of my clothes!

So Excited! Business Cards!!!

Lookey, lookey, lookey here!!!!!
My dear, sweet hubby designed these for me.......probably because he KNEW that it would take me FOREVER to figure it out! I think that they look really good! If you buy something, you'll get to see one in PERSON!!! :o) If that's not incentive, I don't know what is!

Project for the boys!

While in Pigeon Forge this last time, I MADE Mark take me by Wal-Mart....I had called ahead and was told that they DID still have a fabric department.....YIPPEE!!! While looking through the fabric, Creston spotted some Army print fabric and decided that I HAD to make him some Army Pants for him to play in. He actually held the bolt and hugged it to himself! I HAD to get him some and some for Mackie to have a pair too. Oh boy!

I'll post a picture when they are done! I think I'll add LOTS of pockets! Boys LIKE pockets!

New Dress Alert!!!

I'm on a 4th of July Dress Making ROLL!!! I had a ton of left over fabric from when my firt son was born....I had thought that I would decorate his room in fire trucks and "patriotic" colors/fabric, but the walls were green, so NOTHING matched with red, white, & blue! Away the fabric went and I'm glad NOW that the fabric didn't work out 5 years ago!!!

I LOVE this dress! It's simple design lets the BEAUTIFUL fabric shine!!!
This will be posted tomorrow on Facebook and EBay.

My SERGER!!!!!!!!!

HEY THERE!!!!! I've been wanting to purchase a serger sewing machine for a while to help make everything go along faster, but they are sooooo expensive!!! Mark told me to start looking on Ebay to see if I could find something that would be used and a lot cheaper! I looked and so did he and FINALLY, I found one that I thought would be a good one to try and I bid on it and WON IT!!! I got it for a REALLY good cheaper price! It is a Pfaff Hobylock and I LOVE it!!!

This was truly a blessing!!! Thank you Lord for helping me find this deal! It came today and I am absolutely in Heaven!!!
If it doesn't fall apart, then it should make my sewing projects take a lot LESS time!!! I can't wait to see how much time I can save!!

I'm really excited about this since I've actually got boys here at home. Mackie has been being my model so far! He already has 4 pairs of shorts that mommy has made, but I'm still "tweaking" tha pattern, so we'll see what we wind up with!!! Keep checking back! I will be posting pictures before I post them on Ebay!

Hope that you all have a GREAT week!!

New Dress Alert!!!

Here is the newest dress that I've made! Isn't it cute? I think I like it ALMOST as good as the Pansy one!!!

I think that it turned out GREAT and the red floral print on the vintage fabric really looks great with the wider cream colored satin ribbon!

This is the first dress that I will offer as a "make it when you buy it" dress. Fabric is limited, but I should be able to make about 3 of these in whatever size you'd like!

Just check them out on Ebay! (Click on the Ebay button at the top right of my blog!)

Thanks for looking!!!


Putting Dresses on ETSY today!

I am in the process of placing 15 dresses on Etsy today. I've got 2 there so far, and with the boys running around like little crazy people, it's a slow process!!! I've also got to take 2 dress orders to the post office, pick up more mailing supplies, and go to a "Christmas" dinner tonight for the Fire Department. (The Restaurant we were supposed to have the dinner at back in December caught fire and just re-opened recently).

Soooo.....we'll see how many actually get there today! Please keep checking back! There will be some really good deals there!

Please "Follow Me"!!!

Hey everyone!!! On the Right-Hand side of this blog, at the top, you will see a "Follow Me" section. PLEASE FOLLOW ME!!! If you do, then you'll get e-mail alerts when I update my blog with the new designs or any info. about what I'm up to! I appreciate it!!! Thanks sooooo much!

Launching on TUESDAY!!!

Ok! I didn't get the time to "Launch" everything on Sunday like I wanted to, but hopefully by Tuesday, I'll have it all up and running!

I will now be posting the things that I'm working on and new designs/patterns on here BEFORE posting them for sale!

I will be posting the NEW items on Ebay as either "Buy it Now", or as 7-day auctions with a "Buy it now" option for those of you who need instant gratification!

I will be leaving "holiday themed" items on Ebay until the Holiday has come and gone. The items that do not sell on Ebay will then be listed on Etsy at a slightly reduced rate.

Most of my dresses are pre-made and are "one of a kinds" in their size. My newer designs will be offered on a "Make it as you buy it" basis. That way, if you need more than one dress in a certain size, I'll be able to accomodate you! I will post a listing of my "regular" sizes for you to have something to go by, but I will most definately make a dress for you based upon your length need! Just ask!

My Ebay items will be listed at

My Etsy Store is at

I have also created a Facebook Fan Page!!! I will be posting my newest items there for you to see (before I post them to sell!). There will be more info. here at the blog, but the Fan Page will allow me to reach everyone faster and with quicker and shorter posts! Find me there and become a fan at:!/pages/Elk-Park-NC/The-Fuzzy-Chicken/382303506376 At least, I HOPE that is where you can find the Fan Page at! I may need to re-post that address after I make the page public!

So much to do!!

Thanks everyone for your support!!!

Launching My Blog & Facebook Fanpage!

I have been working hard to get everything together to LAUNCH "The Fuzzy Chicken" tomorrow (on Sunday!). However, I am going to be out of town with a group of girlfriends for the day! Today has been an action-packed one! I got up when Mark left for work this morning (he is an Engineer for the Town of Boone Fire Department). I got quite a bit done before the boys woke up. Once they got up, we ate breakfast, got our clothes on, and out the door they went to play in the yard! YAY!! It's the FIRST DAY OF SPRING!!!! Not 45 minutes later, back in they came claiming to be tired and cold and hungry. This MUST be a boy thing. However......I get tired, cold, & hungry pretty easily maybe it's genetic!

They watched "Chuggington" (their new FAVORITE cartoon) and ate a snack, and then we all went back outside to enjoy the rest of the morning and to take this picture!The sun was hitting just right through the trees and the breeze was gently blowing the dresses around. These are a few of the dresses that I have made and still have on hand! I have already sold 14, so I'm really excited about all of this!

Just to let you know..........I pre-wash the fabric before making the dresses, and then I heat treat and attach the ribbon ties so that they won't come out or fray.

I sew the dresses using French Seams so that the frayed edges won't show. Once the dress is made, I wash it again to make sure that there are no problems with the stitching or ribbons.

I have had WONDERFUL feedback so far from my dresses and would love ANY and ALL feedback in the future! I just want to keep making my ideas BETTER!!

I will be posting my newest dresses/designs on Ebay first and then will move the remaining items (at a reduced price) to Etsy. Please click on my Ebay & Etsy buttons on the upper right side to view the items for sale at each site.

I have really enjoyed making these so far! Hopefully I'll be making many more to come!!

Keep checking back! I will be posting my newest designs and also will be blogging about my experiences making little boys shorts!!!

Not Happy with the Appearance of this Blog...

Hmmmmmmm........................There are sooo many CUTE free blog backgrounds out there, but all of the ones I like say "for personal use only". At this point in the game, I don't want to spend the fundage to get this blog all decked out in the cute fashion that I would like for it to be. It may be that for now, it'll be a little blah..... I don't like blah! It's soooooooooo.........Blah!

I think I've said before that I will be working on the Logo and now I'll also be working on the color scheme for this little bloggy of mine!

Hang in there with me everyone! It'll look GREAT soon!!! :o)

The Fuzzy Chicken........????Why??? I have named my project finally and it will be called "The Fuzzy Chicken". Now...why this name? Well...........I started out as "Patchwork Blessings" because that showed off the sewing aspect of this endeavor and it also held a theme of "A patchwork of this and that to Bless you with". HOWEVER, I couldn't get used to it and wanted something a little more fun, so I got to brainstorming. I was having a hard time until one day while talking to my little guy (Mackie), he said something cute and I fluffed his curly hair and I called him one of the nick-names that I have for him (and sometimes his brother) ~ Fuzzy Chicken (it's all about the hair!) Suddenly bells went off in my head and it clicked and I LIKED IT!!! It sounded FUN and BRIGHT and Kid-friendly!!! Big-Kid-Friendly too!

So.......................I may play around with the actual Logo from time to time, but from here on out, we will be known as "The Fuzzy Chicken"!

(You will find that I LOVE to write and tell stories.....and I LOVE to use punctuation incorrectly!!!!!!!!!!!!!) :o)

My Little "Project"

Hey there, everyone! To those of you who know me, you know that I've constantly got 10,000 ideas and "Projects" going in my head and home. Many of those projects only find themselves half-way done. My husband can attest to that. However, I have spent the last month+ working on THIS current project of mine. I ran across a picture of the cutest Pillowcase Dress one day a few months back and thought "I could DO that!!" As luck would have it, I already had quite a bit of fabric on hand that I needed to do something with, so it seemed to all fall into place! I created my first dress, adjusted my pattern a little bit, and off I went!
This whole thing got started around a GOOD Holiday ~ St. Patricks Day!

I sold 9 of these and COULD have sold more, but wasn't able to get anymore of the fabric. (I'll know for NEXT year!)
After that, Mark (my husband) found a pretty & bright fabric pattern that he said would be really good and "Spring-y" looking. He just knew that people would like them! And they have!
I've sewn pre-made dresses out of MOST of the fabric that I had on hand.....mainly because they were odd lengths and I wanted to have something to show people. I've been blessed so far and hope that this turns into something that I can continue and keep adding to as time goes on!
I am a Stay-at-home mother to my 2 little boys and LOVE them to pieces! (On some days, I'm the one that is loved to Pieces!!!) This project does, however, give me some time to myself (on occasion) and also allows me to contribute financially to our household. I hope that as you follow this blog and see all of the ideas that I come up with, that you will be inspired to want to own a piece of my creativity, or in the least, be inspired to create your own bit of "pretty"!
Thanks for looking and keep checking back!
