• gezza5 (aka mummy) made these adorable birds!!! (newspaper, sellotape and fabric scraps) ;D
  • double sided leaves (plain & print) made from fabric and craft felt scraps) and sewn together. (roughly 30" drop from hoop)
  • an upcycled embroidery hoop (12") wrapped with various rags and knotted to create a raggedy annie look.
  • i used lime green gingham ribbon and 3 large jump rings to secure. (disguised by more rags) The mobile is really lightweight and only requires a simple cuphook in the ceiling to hang.

a pretty perch

    Hi Heather & Heart Handmade! :)*

    The idea has been brewing in my mind for months but took three days to materialise! The lengthiest job was making those leaves which seemed to take forever! I'm so glad it paid off! xoxo
