Rick Rack on Funky Chick Pattern
There is an error on the cutting of the rick rack for the Funky Chick. The two sizes have been reversed. You need to cut 15 - 1 1/2" pieces of the baby rickrack and 6 - 5" pieces from the medium rickrack. We apologize for this error. - Cindy H
Beaks & Rick Rack
Ok if I had finished reading all of the tells you to cut the prairie points down to size for the beaks!!! There is a misprint about the rick racks though they have confused the 2 sizes in the cutting directions..have called them about it and am emailing so they can make the corrections.
Size of beaks
wondering if there is a misprint in the directions as the beaks are HUGE. I know they are suppose to be oversized but not this much! Am I doing something wrong?
Love the funky chicken
Can't wait to make it. It will fit perfectly with my kitchen decor. Thank you.
