Sorry for the sparse updates here! Life seems to jet by at a mile-a-minute these days! I did however, want to make time to share this cute woodland baby mobile that I made for my dear friend who is expecting a baby boy in March. She has a super cute woodsy themed baby room for her, and as I thought what I wanted to make for her I saw the cutest little felt animals as I scrolled through Pinterest for inspiration.
If you follow me on Instagram or my other social media outlets you’ve probably seen these… but here they are all together!
I had an unfortunate sickness decide to rear it’s ugly head for about 4 days during crunch-time when I was supposed to be working on this in preparation for my friend’s baby shower, so I was super thankful I was able to get this done! After a ton of hunting around on Pinterest I found a wonderful post by thecraftycats.com with some nifty PDF files to download of Woodland Creatures! This really helped me get started as drawing is NOT my strong suit.
I was super happy that the grapevine wreath worked so well for the top of the mobile as I was really going for that woodsy look. It was a little challenging attaching the strings, but using a darning needle to get in between the branch openings worked really well. You can find a grapevine wreath, like I used, on Amazon for pretty cheap as well as some quality felt for this project via my affiliate links below.

Note: You’ll also want some suuuuuper sharp scissors (these Fiskars ones are great) or an exacto knife for this project to make precision cuts to accurately cut out these patterns!
Here are a few more felt creations that I used from thecraftycats.com, the bear, fox and deer.
Felt Black Bear:
I did really enjoy stitching up the black bears little closed eyes, nose and mouth. So fun!
I found a cute little mushroom pattern from Squishy Cute Designs (check out their super adorable patterns here).
My friend loves wolves so I knew I had to make one, and thought it fitting that a pretty snow peaked mountain be above him. 😀
I searched around quite a bit on Pinterest, and loved some of the stitching on the chest and tail I was seeing with embroidery thread, so I knew I had to incorporate that.
Thanks for checking out my post! See you soon!
