Felt Baby Mobile


The minute I saw an adorable mobile on Eco Felt Crafts (who got the idea from It’s the Life, who got the idea from The Handmade Home . . . don’t you love how bloggers share???) I  knew I had to make one for a special baby girl. I love the combination of felt, fabric, buttons, and ribbons in greens, pinks, blues, and whites to match her nursery. It was so much fun to make!  P.S. Click here and here and here and here and here for five more cute mobiles. And if you’ve made one, please send me a link in a comment and I’ll add it to this post. I’d love to try them all! ♥

  1. Really nice and I love the way each blogger has slightly changed the idea. I knitted a mobile- fish – for my grandson- great fun- was thinking fish shapes would make a nice variation with the felt and fabric–thinks….

  2. I love it, I would like one in my office for me 🙂 It would give me something colorful to look at when the snow flies 😦

  3. I love it. Another reason to never, ever throw away any scraps of fabric or odd buttons! I really like the threads on the front of the buttons. So much more “Kitchy.”

    • Thank you, Liz! And you’re SO right about the little scraps and buttons! And I absolutely LOVED attaching the buttons this way! It’s SUPER fast and gives it one more pop of texture. I can’t wait to make more! 🙂

  4. How did you know that making a mobile was on my mind the last couple of weeks??! 🙂

    My little girl (7 weeks old) is starting to discover her environment and this project looks easy, not too time consuming but oh so adorable.

    Thank you!

    • You’re very welcome! What I love about it is that you can work on it a bit at a time . . . cut a few circles . . . glue bits together . . . stitch on a button . . . and using the embroidery hoop for the top makes it a cinch to get the finished streamers balanced. 🙂 Have fun . . . can’t wait to see yours! 🙂

    • I do, too! It made it SOOOOOOOOO much easier to balance the mobile since I could loosen it and pull the ribbons through to just the right spot before tying everything together at the top! Plus, they come in so many sizes. 🙂

  5. This is great! I have so many friends and co-workers right now that are expecting. This will be a great gift idea for one of them. 🙂

  6. Hi! Thanks for this perfect gift idea for my little niece whose baptism is on 30 September 🙂 Though I won’t be able to pass her mom the gift for her on time, I’m in Jakarta and she’s in Singapore, I’m still really excited about making the mobile. Since I’m in Indonesia it’ll be a batik-themed one.

    Thanks again!

  8. This is a wonderful idea ….except they are banning mobiles in Canada, so sad……..But i could see it in a school girls room in funky colours

      • Apprently its a hazard, choking and stranggling….. a couple kids apprently passed away – Man they things i played with ….. my parents would have been in sooooo much trouble THESE days

          • Yah i just heard via a baby shower,, we live without tv/news too ours died and we never replaced it. So the only news we get is third party….or i have to check via computer….I think the world would be better off to be honest without it (TV) but oh well.
