Crafty Project #3….

So, before Chompy was born, my friend sent me the link to this blog:  Sew Liberated.  She thought that it was a cute example of a baby room that went with my theme of nature, the outdoors and neutral colors.  Ever since I saw the bird mobile on the wall, I wanted to re-create it but had no idea how to do it.  It has stuck in my mind as I’ve started working on these sewing projects and since discovering how much Chompy is absolutely obsessed with birdies.  Can you see his face if he had a whole wall devoted to them? (well, he kind of does already, but you can never have enough birdies). :)

So, today, I looked up how to make it at:  Spool and then the family and I made a trip to JoAnn’s for some fabric to make the birdies. 

Here are the first two:

These little guys are just waiting for me to make them some more friends, and for Josh to cut down the dead tree in our front yard so they can have a place to roost, and then Chompy will have his birdie wall :)  Fun stuff.
