mobile madness

So we looked at mobiles at the shops and were always a bit...meh. Miss s is now almost 8 months old and we still don't have one for her. So we have started a challenge...a duel if you will. Mr k and I are going head to head in creating a special mobile for our girl. We have one month and then present our work. Have no idea how it is going to be judged. Mr k is quite artistic so I have a bit of competition however apart from looking up fishing sites and illness symptoms, he really has nooooooooo idea of the depth of inspiration for diy crafts!

I've never made anything crafty before but I'm looking forward to the challenge.

Here are some things I'm looking at. At the moment, I'm thinking lots of rainbow hued felt animals cut out and stitched with lots of length. I'm also thinking of some embroidery hoops wrapped in blocks of wool or embroidery cotton. Feel free to pass along any


  1. I really like the first one. Bright and colourful and most importantly it looks like the easiest to make (out of the four).

    Wow the pressure of a challenge with hubby. I know I would be VERY competitive with him. Good luck! x

  2. That second one is beautiful!
