make mobiles!

here is what i created for the mobile swap hosted by meg at elsie marley. it is the first mobile i have made but certainly not the last! i used this tutorial to make the fabric covered balls.

how fabulous is this wood grain print from joel dewberry? LOVE it!!

and here is the wonderful handmade mobile we received. the littles love it and it is hanging in the front room above their play kitchen.

look at the sweet little blue bird in the yellow bird cage! swoon! all the ornaments are felted wool and there is a really cool wood propeller in the center to help it balance. our mobie was made by leslie from three birdies. thank you leslie, it makes us all very, very happy! for more mobile inspiration check out the flickr group. i am on my way to add my photos now.

and don't forget to check out the seasonal celebrations swap! you can sign up until tomorrow. a spring themed mobile would be a perfect project for this swap...

WOW I LOVE that mobile! Erika you could so sell those for baby cribs! I've never been too fond of most mobiles out there-but this is by far the cutest I've ever seen!
