DIY simplest baby mobile ever…

I’ve finally completed Jasper’s bedroom area, finishing off with a really simple mobile. He is pretty excited by it, I’m not sure it’s going to help him sleep though!

I started off with a cheap mobile base which I found on eBay and a copper ring, the kind you can make dream catchers from. I then simply tied and sewed ribbons to attach to the mobile and then again ribbons to hang downwards. I didn’t fill the ring as I like the base metal colour and I quite like the messy, untidy look.

I may need to shorten some of the ribbons as he’s able to grab, but at the moment Jasper us enjoying letting the ribbons run through his fingers.

The last weekend was spent catching up on the last of my orders, making my lovely brand reps their gorgeous Valentina Heart-back tops (blog post to come as soon as images start rolling in) and it was also spent putting the finishing touches to Amber’s bedroom… Yup I know months after we moved in! I’ll get to finishing the whole house eventually!

The wall-art is my favourite part of Amber’s room I think, but so simple to achieve! Simply pop your favourite lace or fabrics into an embroidery frame, trim the excess fabric off and voila!
I used a mixture of vintage lace and table cloths with modern net fabrics and velvet, I used the same fabrics on the bunting with a neon pink ribbon to contrast and zing, with gold bells to add a little more interest! With left over fabric I whipped up some baubles to hang beside the curtains…
