Jackets for Rescue Chickens

I managed to hand sew 12 vests to Post off tomorrow, I didnt have all the suggested materials so 4 are sweatshirt material, with button up side tabs, 4 are Thermal very soft vest material with ties, and managed to squeeze another 4 out of sweatshirt material with ties.
12 in all, not a great number, but its a start...
to Give hope to the sewing challenged, here our some of the ones I'm posting.
As you can see I've covered all my mistakes with liberal sprinkling of hearts..

Please read the post below for all Rescue info..

This is such a wonderful thing you're doing. Those poor chicks! I saw a story a while ago on a wet suit sewn for an old penguin who'd lost his feathers. This is awesome!

Am so sorry to read about your dear Poppy. I love your description of the beautiful life over the rainbow bridge. I'm now picturing my lost loves happy and cared for by those lovely maidens, too.
hugs, Liz

Take heart, I'm sure our babies aou all cared for.
Sonia, I'm sure they will be great, and much improved on my hand sewing ones, I was very out of practise...
The chickies will be very grateful.

What a wonderful thing to do. It will help the chickens both directly, providing warmth and protection, and indirectly, by raising awareness.
Thank you for doing this!

you've done an amazing job with the jackets. I've been busy too, but mine aren't half as good as yours, still I hope the hens appreciate them :) thanks for helping the hens.
