Under the Sea Mobile

I just realised with all the mayhem going on in the last few months of moving house etc. that I never blogged about the mobile that I made for Caelan. So here goes...
From a young age, even as young as a few weeks I noticed that the baba seemed to like sea creatures. He liked pictures of them in books, loved his seahorse night light and loved his rattle whale toy. So with this in mind I had decided to make him an under the sea themed mobile.

I used the frame of an old mobile I didn't want to use and made my own little creatures out of felt; a whale and seahorse obviously, but also a jellyfish, turtle and starfish. This was only my first mobile attempt so I think my sewing is pretty messy but I think I have improved a lot since then! I'm working on a couple of new mobiles which I hope to get up in my shop soon. They just take ages to make so I will not be making very many of them any time soon!

Even now the wee man still loves his mobile so I think the sea theme was a good choice. Every time I put him in his cot at night, he always looks at his mobile and smiles. He especially likes the whale. I may have a little marine biologist in the making!
