Decorating with Yarn!

Hello Everyone!

It has been a while since I have posted, since I am getting used to life with newborn twins! I wanted to create something, with yarn, that was a little different than my usual items, could hang on the wall, and baby friendly. I decided to purchase a latch hook kit, to fit my underwater theme!

I had to add in my little twins (just two weeks old!) and their plush whales too! You can see the pattern for the orca here and the humpback whale here.  Also, the amazing twin pillow they are sitting on is called the Twin Z pillow and I love it! You can purchase one through my affiliate link below (doesn’t charge you any extra, but I get a small percentage) . 🙂 Now back to the latch hook border!


Image Butterfly Mobile Tutorial

Over Christmas I took the train down to Oregon, to spend some time with family and decided to have a crafty Christmas! I originally planned to crochet a few baby mobiles, for my little twins, but I started to worry that I was going to run out of time! Time seems to be flying! I can’t believe I was already 24 weeks along for Christmas. I still have their hospital hats, newborn photo props, and more plush toys to crochet! Consequently, I recruited my parent’s help in making a spiral butterfly mobile out of simple scrapbook paper. I wanted a simple and sweet mobile to hang over their changing table, in hopes that it will be a good distraction for all of those upcoming diaper changes. 🙂

I wasn’t quite sure how to make the mobile when I started, so I will do my best to explain the process.
