Robin Cushion Kit

£49.99

This Robin Cushion is a great way to bring a bit of lovely Liberty to your seasonal decor. Nothing says festive quite like a robin in the snow. Imbued with positive symbolisms of new beginnings and good fortune, robins have a history of adorning our Christmas cards and Christmas trees. There is also the old expression of comfort and warm feeling, ‘when a robin appears, a loved one is near’. By sewing this cushion you can enjoy the pretty sight and soak up the good luck of a red robin on your sofa or bed this winter. Suitable for an advancing beginner sewer, it is constructed using raw edge appliqué and patchwork techniques. Appliqué does require some concentration, but will help advance your sewing skills.
