I started off with a scarf from the pound shop (I know - I am cheap-o this year!), which is basically black fleece material that has been hemmed. I chose this because I knew the fleece would be super easy to stitch on.
I grabbed some felt and embroidery thread from my stash in appropriate robin colours - red, brown and white. I also had a sheet of black for stitching the robin on - and to hide my stitches on the final product!
- 1 scarf
- Paper pattern
- Coloured felt
- Coloured embroidery thread + needle
|Step 1: Make some paper patterns|
|Step 2: Draw round patterns onto felt in appropriate colours x2|
|Step 3: Lay out your cute felt pieces to check you are happy before you start sewing|
|Step 4: Stitch each piece onto a piece of black felt, make sure there is space to cut around the robin (about 1/2 cm). Use co-ordinating thread for each coloured felt piece. Don't forget to add a beak!|
|Step 5: Carefully trim around the black felt (you will need enough space to stitch this onto the scarf!)|
|Step 6: Stitch your robins onto the scarf! If you have time you could add leaves / berries - it would look so cute! Modeled by my lovely mum before I wrapped it up :)|
p.s. she has already opened it and was very pleased! yay!
