Prior to his birthday, I crafted up a storm in order to decorate his nursery. One thing I definitely wanted to make was his mobile. I researched a bunch of mobiles on etsy and blogs and came across one that I knew I could make myself. Unfortunately, I did not save the link and cannot find the shop anymore! Ugh- I'm sorry. I'll keep searching.
Here's how I made the mobile:
1. I drew woodland animals onto cotton muslin using black permanent pen. I decided on a bear, a squirrel, raccoon, fox, and wolf. Any animal would work but I liked choosing ones that lived in similar habitats.
2. Then I cut around the drawing and sewed them to assorted cotton fabrics.
3. Next I attached white string to the tops and tied the strings onto a white clothes hanger. Sorry for the lack of pictures for this step, but you get the idea. Just bend the hanger into a circle and tie the animals.
You can see the mobile hangs in front of a vintage painting. The artist of this painting is actually my Mom as a high school art student. She painted her boyfriend's football picture. Her boyfriend? - my Dad.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend,
