Finally got around to making a bird mobile from the spool sewing tutorial. I exclusively used fabric received in a patchwork-themed fabric swap a few months ago. The mobile shown was gifted to my sister-in-law for her birthday. It serves as decoration in her somewhat bare living room.
These birds are addictive to work on. It’s fun to dig through my scrap box and pull together interesting fabric combinations. They’re also a great project to work on while otherwise distracted. These were all constructed as the Mister and I furiously worked out way through the last few seasons of Doctor Who (the library only lets you check out a season for a week). My plan is to add more birds to the leftover pile and pull together a slightly more elaborate set-up for some lonely corner of our house.
