Baby Eve

I'm happy to announce (even after non-regular posts) that a new baby girl joined our family at Christmas time! It was a very different, but very special Christmas. We felt so blessed to have such a sweet angel at such a wonderful time of year!

Little baby Eve Elizabeth

We love her and are so excited she's finally here!

I can't believe I have four kids--big family, right? Weird. I have no idea what I'm doing, but each child has been such a wonderful blessing to our family. Their unique personalities teach us so much.

P.S. Don't you love the stories these photographs capture? My friend, very talented Heather Palmer took these photos. She is so good at storytelling!

stars and moon baby mobile

1:12:00 AM

I've loved working with wool felt lately. It feel so soft and warm. It holds up so well and is so pretty! I've been wanting to make a baby mobile with wool felt and used the fun occasion of my college best friend having a baby to give it a try.

Here's how it turned out!

I used dark pink, warm pink, mustard, buttery yellow, cream and white felt and graduated the colors. I used a large embroidery hoop for the structure and wrapped it in a soft twine. The moon was stabilized with interfacing sandwiched between two felt pieces.

I learned recently that I could sew through the cent of felt or paper shapes to make garlands and applied that to the making of this mobile.

It was fun to make and pretty simple in concept. My kids were pretty much in love with it, so I see more coming in the future. :)
