I love making things for babies! You can't help but smile as you make something for a new little person that will be entering the world.
Colin and I don't have any kids yet, but we have quite a few friends that are having babies, so I've been making lots of adorable little items.
Our friend Jeanette will be having a little girl soon, and she and her husband have done the nursery in a space theme. Jeanette found a mobile she liked on a blog, and I worked to recreate it.
Here's my version (I tried to stay pretty true to the original felt characters):
I used a wreath form (painted it silver) to hang the felt pieces that I hand stitched. They're hanging from clear, stretchable jewelry wire (well, it's plastic, so it's not technically wire). The wreath form is hanging from silver jewelry chain. The hook at the top is a jewelry piece.
And I found a few additional space items while I was picking up craft supplies.
Who knew there were such cute space things out there?!
Baby stuff is so much fun!
