Circus Baby Mobile
Hi everybody! All the patterns for the animals of the circus baby mobile are now available on the blog. Now I will show you how to put it together. I am sorry I had to finish it quickly and did not take so many pictures. But I am making a new mobile right now and I promise I will take more pictures so it will be clearer to explain how to to it.
You can find the patterns for the animal here:
PIN IT FOR LATER
- A wooden embroidery hoop
- Red and white yarn calling for a 5.5 mm crochet
- Bulky red yarn to cover the embroidery hook
- Felt sheets for the star, the circus tent and the circus ticket
- Felt sheets for the triangles around the mobile
- Letters and stars buttons for the name on the circus ticket
- A (plastic) ring to attach the mobile
- Hot glue gun
Cut 2 stars shapes in the yellow felt. Sew them together and put a very amount of stuffing inside. I also made a little circus tent (you can see the pictures below).
Add 2 strings of yarn (white and red) to each aminal and to the star/circus tent. I made this mobile for baby Noah so with felt I also decided to add a black circle under the footstools with some white letters for “NOAH”.
I then made a circus ticket with the name Noah and I sew it to the hoop.
Attach the animals to the hoop.
Make 2 ch of 50 with both the white and the red yarn with the 5.5 mm crochet hook. Attach them to the mobile and sew them together in their centre. Then attach the ring to both chains. Attach the strings holding the star and the circus tent to it as well.
Once all is done, you can start to cover the hoop embroidery with the bulky red yarn. I used a hot glue gun to keep it in place.
I also made several small triangles of felt and sew them over the red yarn, all around the hoop.
So here are few details to explain how to set up the mobile. A lovely lady recently suggested me, it would be better to add the animals slightly leaning over so the baby can see them better. I will probably do it for my next mobile!
Please let me know if you need more explanations!
