I felt so inspired and full of love when I brainstormed, designed and crafted this “Birds of Greatness Mobile” for a dear friend after the birth of her first son. I wanted to created this piece with the vision of surrounding this beautiful baby with greatness and bestowing these qualities onto him. In choosing the birds for the mobile, I selected attributes that (in my opinion) great people embody.
I decide which qualities and birds I wanted to feature, then drew patterns, carefully selected the fabics and placement and then hand-stitched each bird. I envisioned this precious babe receiving lovely blessings and goodness with each nap he took.
