Christmas Robin

I don’t normally start decorating the house until the 6th of December but in preparation of this I made a felt Christmas Robbin. This was taught at a Monday craft sampler class in Central office.

Robins can be linked to Christmas back to the 17 century when the first postal service began. The postmen wore a red uniform and were known as Robin red breasts.  Robins are also more popularly known to be messengers for Santa.

Here’s how I got on…

I have to be honest; this isn't one of my more successful attempts. My robin turning out more like a turkey or a parrot because of its long beak, I also lost one of its eyes. But I had so much fun making this and couldn't help covering it in glitter to add some extra Christmas cheer.
