Living in a two storey house it was important for me to have both an upstairs and downstairs change and bath area for Addison.

For about the first six months Addi will spend most of his time upstairs rather than in his bedroom, however there will be times when I need to use downstairs for changing nappies as well. For convenience reasons I’m really happy with how we have set up for Addi, despite having to have double of everything.

Something I wanted to make for nappy changing time was a mobile of some sort to hang and keep Addison entertained. I have been wanting a sheep mobile for a while now (can’t really explain it, I just think sheep are cute! :) ).

So since I’ve been told not to do anything (by my husband) that might bring on labour until our health insurance cover kicks in, I’ve been very bored. I love to keep busy and find it very hard to not be doing something… I thought why not make some felt sheep for a mobile!!

I drew up a pattern for the sheep, gathered my supplies and made myself comfortable on the couch sewing my sheep! I added some Lissylane felt and button flowers, gold beads and folley bells, all hung using blue ribbons. Here is the finished sheep mobile… pretty snazzy if I do say so myself.

I will of course endeavour to scan and post a PDF with full directions, in the free downloads section, of the pattern to make your own sheep to use either on their own or for a mobile like I have done.

You might notice that one of my sheep has a little ear problem (my husband thinks this is hilarious). I accidentally sewed the ears of one of the sheep upside down – I’m totally blaming this on pregnancy and baby brain! Oh well, he’s a unique sheep and there is nothing wrong with that!

    Hi Alisa, this is one that I was very slack with and never got around to doing (it was one of the last things I made for Addison during my pregnancy and then he came along and my available time went from heaps to none lol). I will check in my sewing folder to make sure that I made a pattern in the first place when I made the sheep and if I did I will get straight onto creating a PDF for you. We have just got back from holidays so you may have to give me a couple of weeks to get my butt into gear but I will do my best. I shall also email you when I’ve got it up and ready. Glad you like the sheep!!
    Cheers Melissa!!
