Just before my second child was born we took down an old apricot tree what was long past its prime. I found myself wondering if I could help this tree live on. What could I do with this beautiful wood? This was the birth of my first mobile.
The next bit of inspiration came from a beautiful fabric I stumbled upon full of birds, flowers, and brilliant color. That was it: birds! A mobile full of birds. While the sequence of thoughts were all original a quick internet search proved the idea was not! At least a pattern was waiting for me!
For those that do not have the time but all the desire the maker of the pattern has an etsy shop with mobiles for sale!But I say make some time and memories! Get creative!
