I love mobiles and had made several in my lifetime. Usually just for myself and for fun. I have the grandfather of the mobile Alexander Calder to thank for the invention.
A friend of mine is having a baby soon and so I had to make a present. Being a creative person I couldn’t just buy her something so I made her a mobile. She loves stars, the baby’s room is natural colors, and she mentioned me and a mobile. I do pick up on hints! I made it gender neutral because we are all going to be surprised in the sex of the baby till the little bundle arrives. It is made of felt, ribbon, and wire. Don’t worry the wire is only the hoop and it is covered so the future baby should never even be able to reach that. I also made it in a way so that it can be hung from the ceiling or any where after the crib is no longer needed.
