OK so the final mobile project didn't include any of these species, but I was still humming this little tune in my head as I worked. Regardless, it is finished. And I love it.
I also spent a whopping $1.29 on the project. Total.
I bought a 12" embroidery hoop and used only the middle hoop- without the screw closure. I had a couple of small wooden dowels from a past project to make a stable cross in the middle of the hoop. As for fabric and felt, these are all scraps! I also have random papers lying around that I used for the balls.
Here's what it looked like last night...a little nakey.
A close up of each tiny animal. (You can see the owl from here.)
Turtle, Dog: Remmie!, Duck
Remmie booty, nubbin and purple collar included.
I loved the look so far, but it just needed...more.
This morning I got out my scissors, paper and glue. (Which sounds like I was doing a kindergarten art project.) I created a few more strands to hang around the hoop for more visual interest for Mini Freed.
I have it hanging from the light fixture for now until we get the crib set up. Then it will be prominently displayed over her sleeping quarters.
I think she'll love it. Do you?
