My family have never done Easter eggs, but once us chiddlybods got a bit older we started exchanging little presents instead. This year I decided to get crafty with my gifts.
When my parents visit they like to stay at a particular hotel, which has a massive picture on the wall of a Tunnocks Teacake wrapper (it’s a Scotland thing. We’re very proud.) and every time my Dad walks past it he says how much he likes it. So I decided to make him a mini version for his Easter present.
Of course I forgot to take a photo before packing it off because I’m a dingbat, but here’s a picture of the wrapper in case you don’t know what I’m talking about.The hardest part was definitely having to eat the teacake to free up the wrapper. Oh the sacrifices I make for my family 😉
Then it was Mum’s turn.
Funny story about my Mum – she is absolutely terrified of birds, can’t even stand to be in the same room as one, but she loves robins. I don’t know if she would ever go as far as touching one, but they are the only birds that don’t make her run away and refuse to return until they’ve gone.
So I just had to have a go at needle felting a little robin for her.I’m not sure it’s as good as my rabbit, but you can tell it’s a robin and that’s enough for me!
I felted a safety pin to the back so Mum can wear it as a brooch if she likes.And of course there had to be an Easter card as well.Does your family celebrate Easter? Do you have any family traditions? Let me know in the comments!
