For the animals:
-here is a link to an etsy store that sells the patterns that they used--aren't they ADORABLE?!
-cut out 2 matching triangles, and a little stump out of felt
-sewed around the tree, leaving the bottom open
-stuffed the tree, held the stump in place, and sewed it closed
For attaching to the loom:
-used the thinnest light green ribbon I could find to attach to each animal and one tree, I did this by sewing a few stitches through the ribbon and the felt
-tied 4 of the ribbons, with trees and animals, to the loom at alternating heights
-used 4 pieces of ribbon to hang the whole mobile, (did the step below this), tied about 1/3 of the way up the ribbon, and then did a 4 strand braid to link all the ribbons together
-added the fifth ribbon, with tree and animal, to the center where the ribbons holding the entire mobile are
-used a little ceiling hook to tie the mobile to
And that's it. Sorry it is a little confusing. You could really hang these any way that you would like. Once the baby is old enough, I will probably take these down and just use the animals as little toys.
Here's a picture of it hanging over our sweet baby to be's crib.
Don't mind the wrinkles in the wall tapestry. I ironed it before I hung it up, but somehow they all came back. I will probably end up tacking it in the bottom corners to pull it tight.
Have a great day, everyone! Don't forget to check back tomorrow so you can link up your recipes in our What We Eat Wednesday linky party.
