A beautiful vertical mobile created with 5 jewel-coloured soft felt birds.
These small birds are embroidered with contrasting colours and easy, but decorative, stitches. Anyone starting out with embroidery will find this a joy to make and it should give you confidence to try more.
Each bird is hand-sewn using blanket stitch and then embellished with cross stitches and feather stitches. An eye is created with a tiny bright button and then the birds are threaded onto a shiny bright ribbon.
Between the birds are more bright buttons to give decoration and weight to the mobile.
It is easy to hang anywhere with a large loop at top.
So relax and have fun making this mobile...why not sew a bird a night!
