(With little sewing skills, cute fabric, and a branch from your backyard, you could make this adorable jungle mobile. )

Jungle Mobile:  

     New bundle of joy on the way? How exciting!!! Want a great way to bring the beauty of nature into your babies nursery. Well I'll tell you step by step how to do create this look. You first want to think of a theme or color scheme you would like in the nursery. For this mobile, the theme is Jungle.

      I then chose six jungle animals that I want to use and drew templates for. I picked out six different fabrics. You place your templates on your fabric and pin the template in place. You then cut your fabric to the shape of your template and now pin pretty side together and now you are ready to sew. Make sure that you leave an opening for stuffing the animal. You want to choose an area that is flat enough to make stuffing easier. Once you are finished sewing you are now ready to turn the fabric. I found it easy to use the easer part of a pencil, do that very gently.

      When you have all the pretty side exposed (turned), You can begin to stuff your animal. You can use cotton filling. I used the easer again to help me do this. I also found it easier to stuff the smallest/thinner parts of the animal first, (ears, arms, and legs). Once you have all your animals sewed, I needed to add eyes and a mouth on some of the animals. You can either use permanent marker or for a more creative look I choose different fabric. I used a product called heat bond. You iron the glue side of the paper to the ugly side of the fabric, cut out your ears, tail, mouth etc, and iron onto your animal. Set your iron to medium to high heat and press no more then 5 to 10 seconds.

     Now that you have all of your animals made, you need to venture out and find that perfect branch. I love using twine with a lot of my projects and that is what I used to hang the branch to the ceiling. Make sure you place the twine where the branch will hang evenly, unless you want an off center look. To hang your animals I picked a color thread and pinned it threw that animal, tied a knot and draped them around the branch. Almost like hanging ornaments on your Christmas Tree. Again keep in mind the balancing part of hanging your animals. I went to my local home-improvement store and chose a hook that I can anchor into my ceiling. I tied a knot at the top of the twine and hung it up on the ceiling hook. And now you have a part of God's beautiful nature for your new bundle of joy to wake up too every morning.
