Ribbon Mobile - Crafting for Baby Girl #2, pt. 3

Baby Sister is due on the 31st, which leaves not many days left before our lives change completely!  Matt goes back to work later this week.  And, I've decided I want to make something every day until the end of this month.  I have a list.  That may be crazy. 

Step 1 was creating this ribbon mobile that hangs over the crib.  It's cuter in real life. 

We always meant to get a mobile for Cadence and never did.  I was inspired by this ribbon chandelier.

I bought a 10 inch embroidery hoop and some ribbon, but I also used some from the box of ribbon I save from gift wrap and packaging.  Once I figured out my method of looping it around the hoop and then doing a knot it went pretty quickly.  We'll see if I can get any of the other projects I've planned done quickly at all.

P.S. We've moved the furniture around in this room like 6 times.  We're finally done.  Mainly because Matt may give up on me if I make him remove and hang shelves any more.
