Last month saw clan Macauley grow in numbers as my sister-in-law Kate and her lovely husband James added a beautiful baby girl to their brood.
To mark the occasion I obviously had to do something handmade – no shop bought, mass-produced ‘tut’ for my niece!
Voila..a mobile that can adorn her ceiling until she’s old enough to make her own styling/colour decisions, and then (hopefully!) through the addition of her date of birth, and weight be a little keepsake for her mum and dad.
I added the sparkly tips to the hanging stars as a focus and entertainment for her little eyes, and also because i’m a bit obsessed with the glitter film from Felted Fancies!
PS: The ‘shabby chic’…let’s just call it plain old shabby (!) wall in the picture above is an indication of the building site my cottage is at the mo (& has been the past 3 years!?!) My current working space is the landing where this picture was taken…wallpapering is on my to do list this winter!
