Counting Sheep...

Nursery mobiles are usually ridiculously expensive, so I decided to make my own. I sketched out a few sheep until I had a shape and size that I liked, then I went to the craft store bought 7 sheets of felt for $0.29 a piece and an 9" embroidery hoop for $1.50. The yarn, sewing thread, and stuffing were all left over from other projects. I stitched the pieces of felt together by hand, which didn't take long at all, and for less than $5.00 and a few hours work, I now have a super cute handmade mobile for the baby's room. It's even personalized with a little MD + NM "carved" into one of the fence posts...
