Baby Mobile # 2


I've just finished another bird mobile, for a girl this time. My friend Rose had a daughter two weeks ago and I promised I would make her a mobile. It was such fun to use some of my new fabrics and use lots of pinks and make it very girly.



I used the same method as last time:
  • sew two birds templates together
  • turn the right way out 
  • sew on the wings
  • stuff with wadding
  • stitch closed
  • attach the buttons for eyes
  • hang from an embroidery hoop



I'd like to do one in bold rainbow colours now I think, bright and cheerful. I will use this beautiful cloud mobile for inspiration . I just need someone I know to have another baby now...

  1. As you know I covert that mobile! A rainbow bird one sounds amazing. The pink fabrics you have used are very pretty, I am sure they will love it.
