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...
