Baby & Big Girl Room - Part 2 - The Mobile

So next up in the room was the mobile. This is what the first 2 had on their cribs and it is adorable...

However, it was not the look I was going for so I took matters into my own hands starting with the fabric I had used on the banner...

I sketched a birdie the size and shape that I wanted, cut it out, and used it as my stencil. I then cut 2 birds out of each fabric...

I found ribbon from the stash that I wanted to hang them from. I pinned them together with the ribbon tucked inside...

I then sewed all around the birdie leaving a small opening at the bottom for stuffing...

Next I stuffed my little birdies...

And then sewed them shut...

Now I had 5 simple and pretty little birdies all ready to hang...

I removed the old animals from the mobile first. Then I pushed the ribbon through the holes for each bird and tied a double knot...

And there it was, the birdie mobile I had dreamed of. Simple and pretty, just the look I was going for...

After the mobile was complete, my Mom sent me some aqua fabric with birdies all over it. I wanted to incorporate it into the room so I made a new birdie and replaced one of the pink ones.

But I found a great home for the extra pink birdie on the girls' closet doorknob...

I will be joining these parties this week. Come check them out!

See you next week for Part 3! Have a happy Tuesday!

aww very cute! i think I will do this for my sister in law. She had a boy but is expecting a girl now. I think her mobile has balls on it.

Tiffany, I love this! Think of how many different looks you could make just by changing the fabric of the birds! It's darling...

I love your mobile. I did a bird themed room for our daughter (9 and a half weeks old) too. I wish I knew how to sew because I really love how cute the little stuffed birdies are. Here is a link to the mobile I made my daughter, hope you like it.

So much cuter! Great job!

So cute! I wanted to do something like that, but couldn't find the plastic mobile top for a price that I liked... so I ended up making my own version since we were on such a tight budget.
I guess great minds think alike! :)

SOO cute. I loved those birds the first time with your sweet 'big girl's' toy, but this is fabulous too!

Great idea. You've inspired me. I'm doing my baby's room in owls and I have an old mobile I can change out so I think I'm going to try and sew some like you showed. Victoria,
