I made this mobile for Eddie; my friend's baby. The sewing was just fun but when it came to assembling it I was at a bit of loss. It is tricky to get the weight right, and get it all to balance. But once you get it right and the little birds all start bobbing on their axis it is the most satisfying thing!

The whole experience has made me want to check out the Calder mobiles that are on show at the Royal Academy of Art at the moment.
