You all had some great guesses on the giraffe, and it’s a mobile for Henry’s nursery. It hangs from the curtain rod at the edge of his crib. (I have no other way of putting it up because I can’t put nails in the cinder block!)

I used three sizes of embroidery hoops for the bases. Then I just used embroidery floss to tie up each animal. Each animal is made of felt and then hand-sewn together with embroidery floss.

There’s a lion who has gold metallic thread in his mane. He’s the king of the jungle, right?

and lastly, an adorable monkey hanging from the smallest hoop. His tail won’t stay up either, but it does look cool twisting down.

I had lots of fun putting this together, and I hope Henry enjoys looking at it when he’s older and can see farther.
