Sweet Bird and Flower Mobile, Mini Blanket and more!

This sweet Bird and Flower mobile was made to coordinate with the Lola Baby Bedding by Serena and Lily. This mobile and birds are all hand made with lots of hand embroidered accents. The main part of the mobile is the flower in the Lola design and has some white satin rope cording and soft pink chenille balls on it’s edge. The flower also has several smaller flower appliques with borders of hand embroidered chain stitches, wrapped dotted stitches, and stem stitches. The birds have appliques on their tummies and back, embroidered stem stitching, and some pink mini puff balls on their backs. The birds wings are attached separately and have a dotted straight stitch accenting them. The flower hangs from the ceiling with a clear plastic line as do the birds so they appear to be flying!

The custom hand painted canvas was also meant to coordinate with the baby-to-be’s bedding and is intended to be personalized with the baby’s birth information. The adorable little wooden birdhouse is also hand painted to coordinate with the bedding and decor and shows off a mommy and baby birdie along with the colors and theme of the Lola bedding.

Oh, the mini blanket! I love the smaller size of these blankets-perfect for sitting that little one on or covering up the car seat from the weather with a touch of flair! This mini blanket has two hand embroidered birds-a mommy and baby bird with some appliques on the mommy bird. The birds are detailed with stem stitches in several different colors and a dotted wrapped stitch.  The inner framing of the blanket is edged in mini ballet pink puff balls, and the outer framing of the blanket is the same soft corally rose pink (punch!) of the bedding. The mommy and baby bird are set on a soft white cotton, as is the backing of the blanket. The blanket has a light batting interior to give it a bit of puff!

The trio of sweet little onesies also reflect the colors and theme of the Lola bedding. The soft pink one has white silk ribbon roses hand embroidered on the front with a stem stitched soft green stem with little white rose buds interspersed between the roses. One of the white onesies has a mommy bird and baby bird embroidered in the same colors and theme as the bedding, the other white onesie has the large flower design from the bedding with two smaller flowers on either side.

It  was so much fun to make these things for Adrea’s new baby-to-be! I loved being able to get a sneak peak of the bedding and getting to create something fun and whimsical! Oh, if only I hadn’t run out of time! Have fun Adie!
