Way back in 2007 when Prudent Baby was just a glimmer in our eye (we are so close that we actually share eyes, true story) I searched the internet, and every boutique in San Diego for a modern and adorable baby mobile. There wasn’t one, not one. So it makes me very happy to share this sweet little tutorial for a felt “paper airplane” mobile. These cute little planes are fun to make and look smart hanging from a few yardsticks above the crib or even in a modern office.
Since making this video last Fall, I noticed that my favorite mobile designer, Baby Jives, also has a fabric paper airplane mobile in her gorgeous shop. Now I’m not sure if I came up with this genius idea or my subconscious stole it, but I know for a fact that hers is cuter! So if you are way more into buying than sewing, it happens, I must share her lovely version as well.
Whether you make it or buy it, your baby will be lucky to gaze up at such a simple and carefree decoration! And if you like our video (and our invisible thread joke) be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for a new video ever week!
