Here is the beginning of a mobile that will be for my dear friends Erika and Karen’s new baby. Or rather, the new baby’s incredibly decorated room, fully equipped with my latest obsession, Blik wall decals, as well as a fabulous green rocking chair, which is very soft and comfy and could lull anyone to sleep.

The birds and star are part of a small craft project that I conducted for her baby shower. Maria and I brainstormed some ideas that we could get people to contribute to, and her idea for a mobile seemed just right. I provided the fabric and felt squares and the templates for the different shapes, and guests cut out the shapes in whatever fabrics they wanted. Believe it or not, with a little poking and prodding, I got people to do it, and the end result will be very cool. One person even made her own design.

They will all hang in some way from an as yet undetermined hanging device. I have some ideas, but we’ll see if they come to be, or if there’s a backup plan involved. I just hope the end result is hip enough to coexist with the Blik and the chair goodness, not to mention the ensuing ultra-hip baby and parents-to-be!
