I made these little birds two and a half years ago. They've lived in three different houses, they've been
played with and chewed on and cooked into soup by a toddler, and I finally decided
to use them to make something pretty.
So I gathered a little thread.
And a little toddler.
And I put the toddler to work. This was actually a great project for River. He loved it and
wanted to keep threading beads after we were finished with the mobile.
Smaller beads and fishing line would have probably been a better choice. But we're happy
with our little bird mobile, and we can always take it apart and change things up if we want.
