Longing for Spring Felt Robin Ornament

It’s going to be some time before Robins make an appearance here. Spring is a ways off – according to the calendar and to Mother Nature. A snowstorm has everything cancelled in our little corner of Maine today, so I whiled away the afternoon making this felt robin ornament. A little wishful thinking on my part!

Robin Felt Ornament Pattern

Note: It’s almost 70 miles to a craft or fabric store to purchase felt from where I live. Since running out to buy felt wasn’t an option, I poked around the Internet and found beautiful wool felt at Estsy Shoppe 3130. I ordered 20 new colors you won’t find in stores (at least up here). Until my package arrived in the mail I didn’t realize that felt could be so thick and rich and beautiful. Check it out of you need felt for any of these patterns!

    Hi, I’ve been admiring your birds! What stitch do you use on them??

    • Susan says:

      I’m not much of an embroiderer. To hold the front and back together I use a blanket stitch. Other places it’s mostly a running stitch. Or something I make up as I go along!

    You’re bird patterns are simply amazing. I followed a link from Craft Gossip. I poked around and found the brilliant blue jay and then fell in love with the owls. Thanks so much for your labor of love. I can’t decide which to make first. Mary

    Thanks so much for these patterns. We are learning about birds in my kindergarten class. Each week the children discover a new felt bird which we hang up on our bird mobile. It will be a robin this week – hope in the midst of a cold winter!
