Baby cot bird mobile (Cath Kidston style)

I made this mobile for my little niece and she loves it to bits. Keeps looking at the birds and also trying to grab them. Needless to say her mum has had to re-stitch a couple of them already :)
The bird shapes come from Cath Kidston book ‘Sew!’. I stuffed them with toy stuffing and hand stitched all of them.

Material Notes

Toy stuffing
2 wooden skewers




Garment Type
Cotton, Other

    I absolutely love this mobile and have made the same one for a friend who’s about to have a baby girl. One problem is, I don’t know how to hang the mobile and the Sew book doesn’t tell me. How did you hang yours? Thanks for your help!

      my dad made an arch shape structure (from some wire I think) and attached it to the cot. My sis then hung the mobile from the arch.
      I suppose you could also use an old mobile holder (if you had one) or buy an old mobile in a charity shop and use just the holder.
      hope this helps.
