and couldn't wait to sit down and have a go. I was pleasantly surprised at how quick and easy the robin was to make out of small scraps of fabric (if you've got any left over charm pack squares or jelly roll pieces, they're perfect). In the magazine the wooden spool was purely decorative and covered in a scrap of fabric but I decided to make mine a bit more useful so I've used a gorgeous ribbon spool by the lovely Kirsty Allsopp and glued my birdie on the top to make a pin cushion, though he's so cute I don't know if I can bear to stick pins in the poor little chap...
Can't wait to sit down and make some more now.
Have a great Sunday.
