If you are new to needle felting, don’t worry, we explain everything and the designers also have online tutorials at

To keep things simple, The Makerss are also offering discount on a kit containing everything you need to make this cheeky robin. Details are on the craft page of the magazine.

Needle felting is achieved by stabbing wool batts with a felting needle. It is a great way to get rid of any frustrations as you stab the wool into shape! The only thing we do warn is that you watch your fingers!

These robins also make a lovely festive gift.
