I am back despite my promise to stay away until after the baby arrives :) I had a burst of nesting energy today and wanted to get the crib mobile checked off of my long list of to-do’s. I used vintage sheets this time and wrapped the hoop in fabric as well.
I made the circles much bigger than usual, I used a jam jar for the template. I really wanted to show off the prints and needed a bigger circle for that.
I also decided to forgo the ribbon and just sew down each circle connecting them into a long string. I thought it would make it look more dainty and feminine than the ribbon.
For the beading I used glass beads in yellow and clear for a more refined look.
I quite like how it turned out and my kids told me it looks like a fancy chandelier. Mission accomplished! :)
You too can make your own crib mobile! I have a free tutorial here on my blog with step by step instructions. You can find it here.
Ok, I really am off now……..I think ;) Only 4 more days to go!
