Birdies for Baby Bronte


This is Nat here, Catherine's (aka Caity) sister in law. Catherine asked me to post pictures here of the felt bird mobile I made for my friend's baby girl.

I've always been a big admirer of people who have design flair and the talent to make things like the beautiful items in this blog. Catherine's mum Mary makes stunning quilts so you can just imagine how much I wish I could make things to really feel like an "Otto".

This bird mobile is the first crafty thing I've made (unless you count those long stitches that were popular when we were kids).

Google taught me how to blanket stitch.

It took a while to figure out which coloured wing should go on each body. These were the only pink and green felt options at Spotlight.

I found a picture of beads hanging from felt animals so I thought that would add a nice touch.

Here is the mobile all packaged up and ready to give to Bronte.

Bronte was even wearing pink and green for our visit, and those two colours just happened to be the colours chosen for her nursery. Lucky!

Thanks for asking me to post here Catherine. I can't wait to see what you both add to your blog next!

  1. Love love love the mobile! you've done such a great job, can't believe it's your first sewing project. The Ottos would be proud.
