This is a continuation of my highly regarded, award winning tutorial series on how to do the stuff that I sometimes do. This tutorial takes three weeks to complete and is called the 3 Week Baby Mobile Tutorial tutorial.
I didn’t take a good enough photo of the completed baby mobile to show as a demonstration of what you are about to make and so you are going to have to trust me that it is good and then get started! let’s get started!
First collect the stuff that you need from Hobbycraft. Hobbycraft can be found and is a land of packaging and prescribed plasticated creativity. I immediately got in a little huff and Cecy immediately found loads of useful stuff. I stood for most of the time looking at the back of Warhammer boxes. I don’t have a photo of the stuff we bought.
I do, however, have a photo of clothing:
You will need some clothing.
First you make some animals from clothes. You base your animals on this less good tutorial. Go choppy choppy with the shapes and then sewy sewy sewy sewy sewy sewy. Then do the inside out and then stuffy stuffy stuffy sewy sewy. Then you are here:
Sewy sewy choppy choppy sewy sewy then push inside out with a pencil:
um…then, you uh first you did the rest of the animals. Two more animals. No, one more animal. The snake is there and then I made a monkey and that was frustrating. Don’t make a monkey, they’re all stiff and hard and they’re made from corduroy that doesn’t feel very nice:
And now you’ve finished the animals! That was fun at first when you were doing the birds but then the others were not as fun and you were a bit impatient really. But it’s okay now because now you make the leaves and they’re different and that means that the living room doesn’t have to be knee deep in miniscule scraps of cloth anymore.
First go to the kitchen and get the stuff out. But the kitchen is dark and so you can’t really take photos so well:
First, get the lengths of wire out and bendy bendy bendy. cut. bendy bendy bendy. cut. bendy bendy bendy. cut. Then glue the leaves on to the wire.
First, glue the leaves on to the wire leaves that are small because the leaves are small. The green plastic leaves are small, you see.
Then firstly, with the bigger leaves, dip them into the other stuff that’s green, not clear. When you have dipped them stand them in the window box with coriander in that you’ve brought in from the garden specially. But don’t leave it in the kitchen for more than 4 days because it’s too dark in the kitchen for the coriander and it will kark it. Then you’ve finished the leaves!
After the saucy photoshoot in the garden (crop out the dead coriander, it is not saucy) it is time to do the next thing that I took a photo of, which iiiiiis…..oh, mister twisty twisty. But this is an especially bad photo:
So, First, twisty twisty etc. bend. glue? maybe some glue there after. Get the leaves, sort them, twisty twisty, bendy bendy, little bit painy. Glue the green, wrap wrap wrap wrap wrap wrap wrap wrap. glue. wrap wrap wrap wrap wrap wrap awwrap rawpr awpr aww. glue. etc. sucks. bells. forget the bells. remember the bells. forget the bells. go back. glue the bells.
Next. Paint some beads as bees. First, get the beads and paint the bees on them. Paint them as bees, the beads:
I made a frog at some point.
Then make flowers from the cutty cutty sewy sewy that we learnt earlier:
Then hoover the living room again.
And then! bendy, bendy, bendy, bendy (on both lots) glue. wrap wrap wrap wrap wrap wrap wrap. glue. etc. cut. cut. cut. twist twist twist twist. thread etc. (flowers) glue glue glue glue. thread thread (bees) tie. glue. And then you have finished! That’s really basically all there is to it. It has taken you three weeks to complete the 3 Week Baby Mobile Tutorial and it looks like this:
