Whales & Sail Boats – Baby Mobiles

Hello, friends!  I am super excited to finally share a special project with you that I have been working on for quite a while!


As you may remember, my sister recently had twin boys – my new nephews – named Nash and Ace.  I wanted to make something special for my sister and the boys; so, when she asked me for help making a couple mobiles for their cribs, I jumped at the chance!  The theme for the nursery is whales, so after looking over some whale and ocean-themed mobiles my sister found on the internet, I got to work.


The hardest part for me was actually remembering to “double the recipe” or make sure to cut 2 of everything because there are two babies and that means two cribs and two mobiles!  I had a ton of fun hand-stitching everything together, though, as embroidery is one of my favorite hobbies (I’ve also made an embroidered sleep mask and a pair of butterfly wings).  There’s something so zen about making all those perfect little stitches.  Here’s the final result:


The nursery is just so cute, and isn’t the giant whale mural amazing??  My sister’s husband (a.k.a. my brother-in-law) drew and painted it by hand!  Here are a couple shots of my adorable nephews checking out their new mobiles:


They’re just over 10 weeks old and growing so fast!  I always love making things by hand, but it is even more special to me when I get to make something for someone I love, and I absolutely love my little nephews!

As always, thanks for reading!  Kristi  :)

  1. Fantastic work! So professional looking!
    Nash is a family name on my grandmas side! Is it for you? I love that name! Ace is a great name too! Both boys are so sweet! I’m sure you are a very proud auntie! Xo

    1. Thank you!! No, Nash is not a family name, my sister just liked it haha! :)
      I am a very proud auntie and I totally acept all compliments to the handsome little guys! ;)

  2. That is amazing. You are so creative.
    I love it. Too bad I don’t know anyone with a baby right now.
    I also feel that things you make are more special then something bought.

Your comments make my day, let me know what you think! :)
