Felt Owl Baby Mobile

Pattern

Owl pattern by Jessica Levitt.

Embroidery hoop mobile by Ashley (Handmade Home).

Materials

Felt of various colours, including white for the eyes and yellow for the beaks.

Embroidery hoop, small bells and fabric glue from Clegs.

Fishing line from Kmart.

Order from the chaos?

This project didn’t involve any sewing at all. I made my owls much simpler than the original pattern and they aren’t stuffed, so they are only 2-D. I glued the pieces of felt wings, eyes and beaks and used a black permanent marker to create the irises of the eyes. The newborn on the change table seems to like them (and the tinkly bells between the owls) and hasn’t realised I’d taken any shortcuts!
