Boss Robin is a bird with lots of attitude : )
His pattern will make both a lovely festive decoration or soft huggable.
Easy to follow instructions take you step by step through all stages of robin-making and includes lots of reference photos and illustrations.
He is a nice plump bird, standing 14cm (5 inches) tall when completed and is happy made in fabrics or felts - perfect for beginners.
With the Christmas festive season in mind, he is perfect made with his "wired" legs and beady eyes, but his pattern also includes a child-friendly version suitable for hugging with felt feet (this stands a little shorter : )

I love making softies, from cute and cuddly to slightly quirky (like me). You'll find a whole menagerie of animals to sew from teds to lions, with the odd dragon and ostritch too. Hope you enjoy stitching them - and have fun x
