I thought I would join in on Hookin’ On Hump Day via My Merry Messy Life.

My Merry Messy Life

I’m working on some baby gifts now that I’m done the Octagon & Squares Throw.   Besides some booties I wanted to make this mobile from Crochet Today!  It is so adorable!  I made my niece one a couple of years ago, and I really loved it.

I’ve got four suns crocheted and am now putting them together.

We had some driving to do today, so rather than try to sew the orange triangles on in the Jeep, I decided to work on the raindrops. One colour equals easy travelling project!

I got three and a half done up to the stuffing+last round stage. 🙂

I made them long dangles with some hard wire about 2 inches long with wrapped loops.  I then wire-wrapped some clear rhinestones to the hard wire.

I choose some peach coloured wire that complemented the stars.  I went from the bottom to the top, and then back down.

  3. Oh how cute! I love the sun and the raindrop. What a great idea for a baby mobile, or baby toys. Thanks for sharing at Hookin On Hump Day!
