I finally got the mobile all finished up just before Christmas. (Literally...I was still crocheting at 11.45pm Christmas eve!). And here is the finished thing.
It went down very well with the recipient, and also with lots of other family member who don;t even have babies, or any intention of getting one...but now want a mobile :0)
It's taken a long time, or seems to have done, but think it may be my favourite crocheted thing ever
Bub's eye view
I saw a mobile on Etsy which incorporated all the parts of the the nursery rhyme Hey Diddle Diddle, and decided to make one myself for a friends forthcoming bub. I'm far too excited about it, so decided to make use of the enthusiasm and make things for them. I've not made it all up yet, but heres the main components. :
Hey Diddle Diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed to see such fun (The dog is based on my own pup..with his own odd feet)
And the dish ran away with spoon
And I made a little Domo for my friend who I don't see nearly enough these days. It was only a very quick project, so not as good as I would have liked. Will have to make an improved version one day.
