Friend’s baby due in Winter? Let the sun shine in the baby bedroom anyway with this darling & sunny rainbow mobile. Easy to stitch up as it is made of simple shapes only. Beyond babies, this mobile is fun for young kids.
This baby or toddler bedroom mobile has 5 elements: 2 raindrops, a rainbow, a set of clouds and a sun shining happily behind it. Actually, this a perfect project for a beginning crocheter to learn a variety of basic shapes. I think the droplets are a darling shape.
With the free crochet pattern you will be done in no time.
Ahem… not to sound to cloudy …, but I have to tell you that I think the hanging threads in this mobile don’t look so safe to me. So, I’d make double sure that the elements are not about to fall off, and that the mobile will stay out of a baby’s reach.
Never hang any homemade mobiles directly over a baby’s crib. Let’s face it: we amateur-toy-makers are just not trained in making super-safe toys. So, it is best to hang this mobile over a bookshelf, or over a baby changing table instead, where the baby will always be supervised. If a droplet with thread were to drop down onto the baby, well, mom will be right there to deal with any loose thread and cuddle with the baby.*
