Here's my little bird mobile for Brynlee's nursery. (I'm sure you've seen similar ones floating around the internet). This project took me so long because I handstiched the birds and of course every little stitch had to be just perfect. (Even though it didn't end up that way!) I am so slow when it comes to sewing! The hardest part was balancing the mobile, though. I finally stitched up a little fabric ball, filled it with rice, and attached it to the bottom. That did the trick! But it was still pretty hard for me to keep the birds upright. They kept flipping over, upside down. I was tempted to use hot glue, but I really wanted to stick to thread, and finally I got it. I wish I would have thought of it sooner. I'm happy with how it turned out, and it adds a little color to Bryn's room.
