handmade felt outer space mobile

Our outer space mobile is made up of various planets, stars, a sun, a comet, and an exploratory spaceship in another universe. Each of the felt elements is threaded with twine and tied to a wooden embroidery hoop, topped with a big felt ball. Although this is a simple project with the help of our pattern and tutorial, it does take some time to cut and assemble all of the parts.

We hope you will share your version of this mobile with us on our private Facebook page for members or by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram! If you have any questions, just comment below.

Skill level: Beginner-friendly

Stitches used: Whip stitch and blanket stitch. See our embroidery guide for tutorials if you need a refresher.

Crafting tip: Our outer space mobile is made out of a color theme of blues, greys, and yellows, but you could easily adjust the colors to fit your nursery.
