I hope everyone had a great rainy Monday. I thought I would pop in with my newest pinterest project 🙂 My twinsie Erin made one for Caden, and after looking high and low for a crib mobile I decided I wanted to make my own too.
The only reason it even cost that much was because I had to buy a 1.5 inch hole punch. (actually the one I got from joann fabrics was 1.78 inches)
I used the inside of a 8 inch wooden embroidery hoop
And some fishing line
By the way the links are amazon associate links, thanks for helping us out!
First I punched out the holes. I didn’t realize how much scrapbook paper I had laying around not being used. Prep.. I took out the inside of the embroidery hoop and used it as the top of the mobile.
and decided to cover it in the fabric I had laying around from Liam’s weekly pictures. Then I took the fishing line and made a pie..I actually cut out WAYYY too many circles.. I only needed 84 circles. I poked a tiny hole in the middle of each circle, and tied little knots on each string dropped a circle, tied another knot about 2 inches away from the other circle, and dropped another circle.I made the middle strand with 8 circles and about 16” long. Then I used 4 more strings with 7 circles in the middle alternating strings, and finally 8 more strings with 6 circles for the outer most lines.
We hung it up yesterday and I took about 20 pictures. I love it so much. Hopefully Liam likes it too 🙂
Since today is my last day of work, and I will be unemployed I’ve decided that I am going to sell them in my Etsy store, so if you want me to make you one, or you are thinking of getting one for a baby shower, check it out. You can customize the colors based on your nursery decorations. I am really trying to think of anything I can do to make some money while I look for another job. And who knows if some of my talents start making me some good money I can live my dream of being a stay at home mom. Soooo help a momma out 🙂
I hope everyone has a great day!
