I have much to catch up on in blogger world…  But in the meantime I will share a piece of a fun project I did with my college roommates this past weekend: we made the Spool Sewing bird mobile for a nursery that I saw posted on design*sponge back in July!

We used a variety of fun pink and yellow quilting fabrics to go with the rest of the decor of the room, and to add a pop of color in an otherwise very pale and demure nursery.  We lightly spray painted the sticks we found using a lacquered white so a little of the branch color still “peeked” through.  The effect was “nature but still little girl nursery”.  We hung the mobile from the ceiling using a ceiling hook and some pink grosgrain ribbon.

It is just the sweetest thing!!!  Thanks, Spool Sewing!!  You can download the bird template right here.
