Bird mobile


Some time ago I stumbled across this pattern on Spool Sewing for a bird mobile. I printed out the free pattern, planning to make the mobile. I think that was over a year ago now. This morning I decided to start on some bunting for the flat, and when looking for some paper in a drawer, came across the print-outs for this. So, I parked the bunting and made my own 5 birds for the bird mobile.

I mostly used scraps of 8 different Ghanaian wax cotton fabrics, and included a scrap of Liberty Tana Lawn fabric leftover from my maxi dress and some leftover fabric from my sister’s maxi. I plan to make more to fill it out a bit. But I’m out of wire for the feet at the moment.

We had a blank wall above the TV in the living room and I just couldn’t work out what I wanted there. I had thought about buying a Flensted mobile, such as this, but think this looks great instead:
