View Full Version : Crib Mobile Frame?

02-14-2002, 05:11 PM
I'm not happy with the $40-50 clown/pastel bears/cartoon character crib mobiles that I've seen out there, and I want to make my own to go with my son's red pickup truck themed room.

I have the necessary supplies (felt, stuffing, embroidery thread) to make four little pickup trucks for the mobile, but I need an actual mobile frame. My search at consignment shops has been fruitless.

Has anyone else done this? Does anyone know of a craft supplier that sells the hardware for mobiles? I'm not even sure of where to start looking on the Internet.

Thanks in advance!

I'm doing the same (only using golf balls), and my neighbor gave me the frame she used for her son. She just went to Target/Kmart/WalMart and bought an inexpensive mobile and took off the existing pieces and added her own.

I haven't seen any empty frames anywhere....

Good luck,
