Little Birds Sing Such Sweet Tunes
I have a very delightful friend, who in just a few short weeks, will be blessed with her 5th child. This friend of mine absolutely loves home-made, hand-made gifts and she's a sucker for Anna Maria Horner and Heather Bailey fabrics.
So when I was invited to a baby shower for her, I knew exactly what to make for her and sweet little girl on the way.
I found this adorable mobile in Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings and knew it would be perfect. I modified it a bit by not using the lampshade as the primary hanging piece, but I think the simplicity of it is absolutely perfect for Kellie and her little one.
Each little bird is so delicate and adorable. It was so fun to go through my basket of scraps and find the perfect fabric swatches for this. And I just knew that Kellie would love it the moment she opened it.
I love it so much that I'm thinking about making a little boy version for our Little Man. Anyone have any ideas of what I could use instead of birds? Or would birds work if I used blues, greens and yellows? I'd love to hear your feedback.
