a little birdie told me...

that after i made this mobile for an Etsy client, Kylene really needed one for her room.i used 13 birds (3 were given me by great, beautiful, and talented girls at a baby shower) and each bird was made out of fabric scraps i had on hand.
connor and i found the cool branches outside and i already had the fishing wire and eye hooks so the total cost of this project was...$0. love it.

it makes me happy to sit in Kylene's rocking chair and watch the birds slowly rotate.
i found the idea here. the birds are so fun to make. the actual stringing of the branches together gets a bit hairy, but if you can take multiple deep breaths, you'll be very happy with the end result.
happy crafting.

I love the bird mobile, and can't wait to see it in person. I'm sure stringing the branches was tricky.
