sweet little birdie mobile

at this point i am pretty sure that my cousin and his wife have opened the gift that i made for their soon to be daughter. so it's safe to post pictures and share this project with you guys. i have seen these fabric bird mobiles for a while now, and have just been searching for an excuse to make my own. they are so sweet and swing around so beautifully. i found the pattern for the birds over at spool, if you are into sewing and haven't checked out their website you should.

the fabric choice was an easy one for me. my cousin and his wife are naming their baby after our grandmother, and since i have so much of her old fabric collection i knew that's what i had to use. they are decorating her room in a pink and white winnie the pooh theme. i thought these sweet little vintage fabric birds just screamed "hundred acre woods". i hope that they love the mobile as much as i do. i think it's one of my favorite things i have ever made.


  1. that is absolutely delightful! I love it! How unique; something that they can pass is one the cutest mobiles I have ever seen.

  2. thanks bitsy. it was so much fun to make and it is just so pretty how it swings around. i told damion that i wanted to make one for our room. he laughed and said we are not babies. maybe in different fabrics? i will tell you what though, i can't wait to come up with another art project that involves mod podged branches....because they turned out beautifully.
