Angry Chicken | Amy Karol
The What’s What: At the Angry Chicken, crafters will find lots of neat ideas like meringue dog bones, while seasoned seamstresses will enjoy unique projects like stylish wool leggings. And even if stitching a seam isn’t your strongest area of expertise, you will find plenty of blog tutorials and instructional sewing videos on You Tube to help you along the way. Oh, and there are no ads here, so consider this blog an online art “sketchbook”!
The Mama: Amy Karol is a mom to three daughters (which makes for some very interesting sewing projects) and an author of two books, Bend the Rules Sewing (which is in its fourth printing!) and Bend the Rules with Fabric (Potter Crafts 2009). Amy has a degree in interior architecture and worked as a commercial interior designer before moving back to her hometown in Oregon with her husband.
