Alligator Mobile

My friend Mandy had a baby in October and for her baby shower that we had back in August (I know, super late in posting this!) I made her a mobile to match the decor in the nursery. She picked out an adorable navy blue and lime green bedding that had little alligators on it. So, I ran with that theme. I used my silhouette machine to cut out the shapes in different cardstock paper that I had to match the colors. I then used an old wreathe ring that was made out of wire and wrapped it with coordinating ribbon. I used clear thread and put a clear bead at the end of each strand to weight it down and then went to town threading each shape on there. I thought it turned out pretty cute! I made a few others during that same time frame, more pictures to come!

OMG, I just love, love, love this mobile. I have been searching high and low for one for our nursery - these exact colors and alligator themed! Would you be willing to make another and sell it?! :)

Melissa- send me an email at if you are still interested in me making an alligator mobile for you. I have a few people interested at the moment and I would be happy to sell one to you.
