He is made with a zig-zag stitch and moving the fabric sideways free motion from left to right instead of straight through the machine. Using 2 threads it gives a denser stitch and is a really fun way to build a picture.
The background is a swirly free motion pattern, in my head I imagine this as wind and it reminds me of the nursery rhyme that says The North Wind doth blow and we shall have snow and what will the Robin do then, poor thing. He sits in the barn and keeps himself warm and hides his head under his wing, poor thing!
My little guy is sat on a branch as we have a tubby Robin who visits our garden and sits on the fence or on the low tree branches annoying Charly our Jack Russell. You have to admire that cheeky spirit!
