For months I have been shopping for a mobile to hang over the crib in the nursery. Only problem is that I haven’t found one that really matched what I wanted. They were all bulky, tons of ruffles, and didn’t have cool things hanging from them. I wanted something that had blacks, whites, and reds for Zig’s developing eyes but just hated all the mobiles that had those color schemes. Part of the theme of Zig’s room is friendly and awkward monsters, robots, and creatures. I wanted something that went with that theme so I decided to make my own mobile out of Ugly Doll keychains.
I used a wind-up box from a cheap mobile, cloth based ribbon from Hobby Lobby, neon green load-bearing string from the hardware store, hooks for hanging plants, and viola! Monster Mobile! Kate was the master of sewing and attached the monsters to the ribbon. A good family project for Zig to reap the benefits of…now if he would just get here already!
