VIDEO: DIY Felt Paper Airplane Mobile

Way back in 2007 when Prudent Baby was just a glimmer in our eye (we are so close that we actually share eyes, true story) I searched the internet, and every boutique in San Diego for a modern and adorable baby mobile. There wasn’t one, not one. So it makes me very happy to share this sweet little tutorial for a felt “paper airplane” mobile. These cute little planes are fun to make and look smart hanging from a few yardsticks above the crib or even in a modern office.

Since making this video last Fall, I noticed that my favorite mobile designer, Baby Jives, also has a fabric paper airplane mobile in her gorgeous shop. Now I’m not sure if I came up with this genius idea or my subconscious stole it,  but I know for a fact that hers is cuter! So if you are way more into buying than sewing, it happens, I must share her lovely version as well.

Whether you make it or buy it, your baby will be lucky to gaze up at such a simple and carefree decoration! And if you like our video (and our invisible thread joke) be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for a new video ever week!

Color Wheel Pick of the Day: Yellow

Through fall and winter we had our hearts set on calming mint green. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a tried and true color, but with spring in the air I’m finding myself skipping down a yellow brick road.

I imagine throwing a spring fling with everyone gathered in my yellow kitchen sipping on lemonade through yellow striped straws in blue mason jars. All the baby girls would be dressed in yellow polka-dot bathing suits with canary yellow sandals – and these swim trunks for the boys.

For me, I’d head up my DIY stenciled yellow staircase to my lemon burst bedroom to pick out a nautical yellow dress or a pair of fantastic yellow heels. We’d all sit back and relax in the warm sun and devour Jaime’s single-serve lemon bars and Jacinda’s heart-shaped salad. Oh yes, this sounds like the perfect spring day.

How will you bring the color of happiness into your world this spring?
