I got this idea yesterday and just had to make it happen!  I used wonder-under to make 7" squares of double sided calico "paper", and folded the cranes with the help of my iron for creasing.  It's all held together with little bows which might be hard to make out in the photos.  The only thing I had to bust out the sewing machine for was the casing on the ring...which I stuffed with fiber fill.  A few scorched finger tips later....

Please excuse the dark photos...it's 10pm and the lights in my house are not so hot. I just couldn't wait to post it...

Do you think it would be a good gift for a baby's room? (er...imagine it in a not-quite-so-dark setting >.< )

This is fantastic!  I'm crazy impressed, and it'd be a spectacular baby gift.  Or adult gift.  Pretty much anyone, really!

This is beautiful! I would look lovely in a baby's room, and it could easily stay there until they were grown-up!

Wow that's amazing that you did this with fabric.
Paper crane mobiles are always fun. A baby's room would be great or just any room in general. it brings lots of colour to the space.

Who wouldn't want this?! This looks amazing and when my son was born he had no mobile above his crib 'cause there wasn't any cool ones. This beats any I've seen.

As for your finger tips....the best creations cost a little flesh. Wink

Ya just can't stop a crafty girl!

These are amazing... ive been wanting an idea like this. I want to hang cute stuff from my girls ceiling thats kinda whimsy and fun and making these out of fabric is so cute. Im stealing it! I think it would be cute for a baby... they love bright colors.

Thanks guys!  I've been considering making something similar to keep for myself Wink

I think it would make a perfect gift for a baby's room.  I've always kind of wondered if this would be something I could do and yours came out looking so nice, I might have to try it.  It looks gorgeous.
