DIY Baby Mobile

DIY Baby Mobile

I love doing DIY projects and anything crafty. I can’t wait until Mazzy is a bit older and can join in on the fun. I made her crib mobile with little owls before she was born and I continued the tradition with Zephyr. When Mazzy outgrew the mobile I turned the little owls in Christmas ornaments that we hang on the tree each year.

For Zephyrs mobile I decided to do elephants. You can do any animal, shape or color as a variation to fit your nursery.

Here is a list of the materials needed:

Felt
Scrap fabric
Needle
Embroidery thread and regular thread
Buttons
2 Dowels
Stuffing
Wax string
Paper & pencil

Step 1. Draw a pattern for the elephant. I drew one elephant shape and one ear and reused them.

Step 2. Cut out the pattern

Step 3. Pin your pattern onto the felt and cut out the elephant. Then pin your pattern onto fabric for the backings and cut. You should have 1 felt shape and a matching fabric shape for each piece. Also cut out fabric ears.

Step 4. Sew the buttons on for the eyes.

Step 5. Sew on the ear. Sew on the tail.

Step 6. Sew the felt and fabric elephants pieces together and leave a small opening to stuff, then close.

Step 7. Sew a little thread hanger on the top.

Step 8. Drill holes in the dowels.

Step 9. Connect dowels with wax string to keep them in place.

Step 10. Hang elephants and attach a string to top to hang from ceiling.

All Done! Once your baby outgrows the mobile, you just snip the elephants off the mobile and they are ready to hang for Christmas!

Enjoy.

    Nassau has fared a lot better than just about any other former pirate haven.
    “We are assigned a predetermined quantity of weekly uploads to the system and get a small extra bonus as we manage to go above that (difficult). While the rally call of Autobot leader Optimus Prime set a bad tone of an entire generation of toys and cartoons in the middle and late 1980s, locating the original “G1” toys of him and the pals – with his fantastic enemies – is becoming increasingly difficult.
