Needle Felted Baby Mobile: A Fun and Collaborative Baby Shower Activity

A needle felted baby mobile is a sweet sentimental gift for a new baby!

Felting a mobile can be a community building activity for friends of the expecting family to come together, get creative and welcome the new baby into the world! This is a great activity for a group of friends and family.

Here at Magic Trout Imaginarium, we've taught new felters at many baby showers.  Even the least crafty people love this fun baby shower activity. The idea to create a group baby mobile came when Zee (our Head Imagineer)  was felting a mobile for a friens baby. She tried to finish the mobile in time for the shower, but time ran out. So, Zee brought her felting supplies to the baby shower and continued her work on the baby mobile.

When guests arrived they al askd "What are you doing?" followed with, "can I help?" Soon everyone at the baby shower was felting a sea creature for the ocean themed baby mobile! Creatures created at the shower ranged from a whale, starfish, seahorse, prawns, and even Spongebob!
