The sunburst crochet thingys now have a purpose in life! Huzzah!
They have been turned into a pretty baby mobile, and lord knows we are going to be needing one of them soon :o)
Do you like it?
I used the same Linda Permann Little Crochet pattern for making up the mobile that I used for the Crochet Birdie Mobile and this time I added some cute little yo-yos that I saw on Baban Cat's lovely blog (and had to immediately make), to decorate the top.
These little yo-yo additions do finish it off nicely but ever so slightly puts the mobile off balance. I do need to figure out how to rectify that, maybe I could just add more, in different colours, to the other side.
Thank you for all your suggestions, you are a creative and crafty lot aren't you??
I'm definitely going to be using this sunny sunburst pattern to make a cushion cover or two, it's just so pretty and would look lovely with a white or cream granny square border, don't you think?
I also like the very simple but very effective pin cushion idea - might need to over-stuff them a bit more or find a harder stuffing material to make them a bit stiffer for that purpose though!
The baby mobile is now hanging around and waiting for the nursery to be
Hope you all had a lovely weekend, looking forward to catching up with your blogs this morning.
