Crocheted chicken lace

I'm more of a knitter and stitcher than a crocheter, but this chicken lace is so delightful, I plan to try it. Instructions included in the blog, in English and Spanish.

I cross-stitched the ALBC's Dominique and Light Brahma patterns onto a denim jacket. I used waste canvas. You stitch over it and then moisten it and it pulls away, leaving your design behind. It makes it possible to stitch any design on almost any surface.

I couldn't figure out how to stitch designs on certain places on the jacket, such as the sleeves. You'd stitch them together! But I put them on the front panels, a rooster on one side and a hen on the other, and the back.
