Hello Kitty Mobile

I made this Hello Kitty mobile for Michele at Island Scrapbooking. Now I think my daughter wants one too. Got the idea from my Auntie, who made one using the first set of HK dies to make a mobile for her grandaughter. In her mobile, she used the Hello Kitties dies that could "fly" like the bird die, HK as a ladybug and HK as a bee. It came out really cute.
So, being the copy cat that I am, I had to copy her idea of making a mobile. My friend Debi told me that she saw instructions on how to make one using an embroidery hoop that you just wrap ribbon around it. She saw the instructions on the Martha Stewart website. Well, I never did find those instructions, so I had to improvise again. The picture above is what I eventually came up with. I wanted to use the summer Hello Kitty dies, but couldn't figure out the color scheme. I decided to go with pink and black, cause don't you automatically think of those colors when you think of her? Well maybe not everyone, but I sure do!
Anyway, I wanted to dress it up a bit, so I ended up using beads and attaching black and white poka dot ribbons to it. The tricky part about this mobile was figuring out how to hang the kitty on the towel and the kitty on top. I had a hard time photographing the mobile cause it moves, so you can't see that there is one more kitty - the one with the snorkle. Oh welll.
Special thanks to Aunty Jan for another great idea!
