I’ve been meaning to post a photo of the finished felt owl mobile all week but just hadn’t had a chance to take a photo. My lovely husband Charles helped me hang the mobile on his public holiday this Monday, and I’m over the moon with the result!
For those that might not have been following my owl making process, the mosquito net is from Ikea which I purchased for $30 and the owls are made and attached to the top. The owls have been made by both myself, husband and our mums. For those of you that are interested in making your own owls, you can check out the directions and pattern here on my website: http://www.pregnancybabychild.com/arts-crafts/felt-owl-mobile-pattern/
Here is a photo of what the owls might look like to my little Jellybean when he/she is in the cot
Good luck for those that intend to make their own owls no matter what you use them for. Remember that these little gems can be used for more than just a mobile or can be hung in different ways.
One idea that I had (which I might still use for something else that I make) is to hang them in a vertical row and use some pretty ribbon with beads inbetween each owl. This would work really well for hanging them near a window or door, even on the end of some furniture. They would look great moving in the wind near a window, like a silent wind chime.
