December is the time of year when I’m most busy with crochet in time for Christmas. However, I started my Christmas crochet much earlier this year with a batch of these cute little robins for Spoonie Survival Kits (SSK). It was quite odd making things for Christmas in July, but when you’re making a large batch of handmade items, you have to start early. When I set up my own Etsy shop earlier this year, I was surprised at how long it actually takes me to make an item. When I’m donating items to a charity, like SSK, I only charge for materials and postage. When I’m selling for profit, I actually have to take into account the hours that I’m putting in to each item and price them accordingly. This is why handmade crochet items are often quite expensive!

I used Marriner yarn (Chocolate, red and sunrise) and a 3.5 mm crochet hook for this pattern along with 6 mm safety eyes by Chikai Makers on Etsy.
