I love the mobile liza jane made for her baby. At first I though: I would sooo love to make something similar, too. I had the idea to buy an old store bought mobile and replace the animals (whatever it comes with) with handmade animals/figures. And so I did. I bought a second hand mobile (we call it "carousel to hang above the crib" here, it fastens to the crib, so that I don´t need to hang it from the ceiling, which is quite problematic here) and started to think about what to make. I was thinking about some gnomes initially, but then I remembered I really like wild animals like foxes, deers... So I started to make strange forest animals. At first there was a hedgehog. In fact, it´s hedgehog´s ghost (some of you may recognize this from one of my paintings :). Then there was a squirrel - yellow, because I didn´t have the right color of felt for it. The third one is a wolf. I´m also planning to make a fox and deer, as I mentioned above.
The only problem is I kind of started to like the actual animals on the mobile I bought :). And I don´t want to cut them off and replace them. Any idea what to do with these new handmade ones...?
