Hello Friday: Easy Cot Mobile



Happy Friday! This week I made a quick and easy felt mobile for my baby girl's cot.   Anyone can make this - and what a cute gift idea for a new mom to be!




I bought a second hand mobile from a charity shop just so that I had the plastic arm to hang my stars from, I'm sure if you do some research then you'll be able to buy one online.  You could also use a couple of twigs or dowel rods or even a wire hanger wrapped in fabric.

The stars are made with felt, the blanket stitch is done with coloured embroidery thread.  I left a centimeter open to shove some stuffing inside and finished off the stitching.  I threaded fishing line through the felt stars and added some beads.  And there you go!  You can do any shapes, sizes, colours - let your imagination run wild!

  1. Baby cot seems so cool with these mobiles. They are simple to make and looks so nice in the room and baby can also play with these and enjoy in resting time .
