Lions and Tigers and Bears...Oh My!

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?

  1. Those are ridiculously cute... good job! Grace makes me bring her close to her mobile so she can attack the butterflies and eat every one of them. She actually gets a little irate when I don't get her close! lol I'm sure your little girly will do the same!
