Remember these little fellas?
This is the resulting mobile I made for Miss G's room before she was born.
A mobile is a hard thing to photograph, so the pics are not that great.
I have been hoping the man of the house would lower the mobile for me but as that still has not happened I thought I would share the pics with you anyway.
This was a lovely project to work on as each of the birds is hand-sewn so I was able to do them in the car, at the hairdresser or just on the couch in the evening.
The pattern is available on the Spool sewing blog (in the sidebar, scroll down a little) which is where I saw it.
The branch came from a tree in our garden and then my father-in-law and I played around and balanced the birds and attached them with fishing line.
When it is in motion it has a lovely, gentle swirling action - which tends to almost hypnotise the youngest in the house.
She loves it - looks up at it when she's lying back feeding just before bed and now chats away to the birds when I lie her down to sleep.
