Workbox magazine feature!

Late last year I was contacted by the lovely people of workbox magazine and asked to share a project based on my adventures in needle felting (see my needle felted mouse here). I was super excited to be contacted by a magazine after they’d read one of my blog posts and got straight to work coming up with a needle felt robin tutorial, which you can see in the May/June issue – on sale now!


Workbox is a bi-monthly textile and needlecraft magazine packed full of inspiration, projects and needlecraft advice. You can find it in larger WHSmiths and Sainsbury’s or order it online. Alongside my needle felt robin, in this issue you’ll find a Despicable Me Minion quilt (so, so amazing) and some gorgeous bird embroidery inspiration.

I figured my tutorial had to involve either flowers or something feathery and as robins are probably one of my favourite birds, they won. It was great fun coming up with and photographing the tutorial. Here’s a nice close up of the finished robin.


I think it’s time for another needle felt project...

  1. Well done you for being featured in a magazine! He's a very cute little robin - his bright red chest is perfect. I actually miss English sized robins, here in the US they are the size of blackbirds, it's very strange!
