Q: I've been totally obsessed with wanting to create a butterfly mobile for my infant son since I saw this very life-like one in David Lassinet's office in the Times' style magazine. Where can I buy one--or else find instructions for making something similar? I've toyed with dangling them from an embroidery hoop, but I'd rather use balancing wires like this one to make their movement look more natural--only I don't know how. Sent by Sarah Editor: Okay, creative types, what ideas do you have for Sarah? I'll take a stab: It seems like you need to find a source for realistic looking butterflies and also wire. This mobile kit is inexpensive and includes 18 gauge wire that you could use. And I found some beautiful feather butterflies in the Supplies section of Etsy. • Got a question?
