Follow Clare Youngs' instructions to make your home a magical place, with these fluttering, softly spinning works of art. Whether you hang them in your window or from the ceiling, these mobiles add a charming, colourful touch to your interiors. There are bronzed paper leaves to hang in the autumn, a delicate floral filigree mobile and a cute elephant mobile for a child's bedroom. The designs use a variety of crafting techniques - from sewing to origami and macrame - and each project comes with easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step artworks. There's also a helpful techniques section at the back that will be of real use to first-time crafters, handy time-saving tips that more confident crafters will appreciate, and a templates section.
