A Round of Robins!

At last.... the big Christmas project is revealed!


It all began this time last year when I hooked this little chap...
followed by my Springtime birds.

Each Robin began as a circle of crochet...everyone different




Each has a yellow beak, sewn onto the back made from wet felt and a tail from offcuts of wet felt used in this Christmas project!...


....a customary needlefelted eye....
 and rosy red buttons


or a needlefelted red breast of Teeswater or Wensleydale curls.




Some are smaller than others...


...many are winging their way around the country...wrapped in stripey paper bags!



130g of browny wool busted on Christmas tweets!

Well these are just the sweetest little robins ever! What an adorable pattern, and the red button tummies & felted tummies give them such a cute look. The last photo is just WOW! What a lot of work, and what a great little gift to pass around. Merry Christmas Ali! Wendy xox
