THREE LITTLE BIRDS

A little while back I was inspired by a picture and of branch hanging above a baby’s crib a few sweet little paper cranes hanging from it. I decided to make my own version with felt birdes from the scrap fabric I had left from the baby mobile I made a few weeks back. Last year on one of our walks to the beach we found this awesome piece of drift wood. We didn’t know how we would use it our home at the time, but now it is clearly ment to be in the nursery.

Instead of hanging it above the crib as the mobile is already there, I took fishing line and hung it from the shelving we installed the day before. Then I took my trusty glue gun and placed the little felt birdies along it.

One day I can see myself holding our baby and the baby reaching out to touch one of the sweet, soft little birds I handmade.

JUST INTIME FOR EASTER

Happy Easter weekend everyone! As the weeks go by and baby Daley grows, we’ve been getting the nursery ready. My latest project was a baby mobile, nothing fancy… it doesn’t sing a tune or have a motor to spin it around but boy is it cute.Baby mobile

I started with buying different coloured felt. We picked bunnies as the theme for the mobile which goes nicely with the “woodsy” wall. I hand stitched each little yellow start, white fluffy could and cotton tailed rabbit.

I used fishing line to attach the felt items on to a large embroidery wheel then continued the fishing line about another foot long with a loop at the end tying them all together.

It took me some time to complete as I did all the sewing by hand but it was a great project to do well watching my shows at night. I hope our little one enjoys it.
