Holly's new colorful mobile...











I wanted to make Holly a mobile for her room when i was pregnant with her...but never got around to it, this week i found a great tutorial for a polka dots crib mobile from this site - http://sewshesews.wordpress.com and decided to try it out. I changed a few things..i did two different sizes of dots, and i did a zig zag stitch down the dots and ribbons which made the ribbon have a little twist which i really like. I think the mobile turned out great and cost me under $10 to make!

  5. I love it! I want to make one for my babe due in March, but I was a bit intimidated by the beading at the top. So you just used ribbon and made ribbon loops to attach to the ring and the hanger at the top? That is how it looks in the photos but it is a little hard to tell.
    Good job!
