(Picture came from SpoolSewing.com)
I came across this sweet bird mobile and I have been dying to try the pattern. I was hoping my sister loved it just as much as I did, and she would ask me to make one for her nursery. If not, no biggie, but I made a few just in case :)
I was in the middle of pulling out all of my materials when Issy decided she wanted to help. I mean hands on help. What?! Yes, Yes!!! (I am so proud) She loved sewing and felt really comfortable with the sewing machine. Who would have known? I am just excited that I am able to teach her about something I love so much.
I made a couple of birds to show my sister and one that I could attach as a "bow" on the package I wrapped my friend Marbella's baby blanket in. This is the baby blanket I started it a few months ago. Which just made me realized that I had not posted an update of what that finished blanket looked like. Its mostly pink on the front, however the fun baby lettering on the center piece has a little orange, this served as the inspiration to use a cute orange and white polka dot fabric on the back side. Ta-da!!
Marbella's due date was last tuesday, and even though their little one is taking her time coming, she could realy deliver at any moment. Ahh so exciting!
