DIY car mobile

Well kids were so sick for over a week straight and we hunkered down at home and laid very low - except for all the running we did taking care of three kids. :) So maybe I should say my kids laid low. :)

Anyway they starting feeling better I started getting a little loopy and needed to create something so here it is:
(I did not go out and buy anything for this I just used the pieces of card stock and paper I had)

With this piece, I used thin cardboard for the inside to make it sturdy.
Truthfully I think I thick piece of cardboard and sewn with yarn would have been better in hind site.
I took two thin pieces of cardboard (off the back of a coloring book and an oatmeal box container) and then cut out two pieces of cardstock front and back and then I decided to use my sewing machine and sew them together.  After that I used a hole puncher and then threaded the cars with differnt lengthes of yarn throught the holes.  I then put a hole in the top and used a piece of ribbon for hanging.

The following pics are of my little 2 yr old jumping his heart out to touch the cars. That night when Baba (Daddy) came home my little guy said "cars look mommy did".   Yep that so made my day!!

I think mobiles are a lot of fun and very doable.  I searched pictures of DIY mobiles and the pics were so fun and inspiring.  Look at this mobile below. I love the colors it reminds me of Spring. :) I mean really how clever.

Cute! This looks like a similar process to what I did for my owl mobile (takes a lot of work, huh?) I love how yours turned out!
