Christmas robins

I've been beginning to focus on Christmas, and have made a flock of robins for my Sew Happy Folksy shop, as well as for my local shop. I'm really pleased with them - I wanted to make a Sew Happy robin that was a little bit different to other felt robins I'd seen and so spent a long time sketching ideas. This one worked the best I thought.

I particularly wanted to make them so they worked both ways - so I've made them identical both sides. They have cute wings and string legs, as well as sequin eyes. And they would look wonderful flocked on a mantelpiece as a special touch.

I couldn't not add some Christmas trees!

I love the build up to Christmas.
