Space Crib Mobile

I wanted to share with you some pictures of the mobile we made for Everett before we met him.

Sorry these pictures are not "blog quality." Maybe I should unpack it and try again. Bet it would end up hanging in Everett's room if I did! {:

Like the porcupine costume (pictures in the bird costume post), this was truly a team effort for Brian and me. We decided on shapes and created them together. I did all of the hand sewing, but that was just because I didn't have a machine where we were then, and Brian worked more than I did.

My best friend Rachel kindly gave us the mobile her kids used, and we reused all the plastic parts from it. I painted its stars yellow and orange to match the fabric. I also used the original mobile's fabric as sort of a pattern, although I didn't rip it apart.

I'm not sure if Everett liked it. Do babies ever really like mobiles? He liked the ceiling fan a lot more!

Haha. Oh well. At least Brian and I had fun doing a little nesting in our tiny apartment that didn't have a nursery. And we made something we're proud of and can reminisce about.
