Sci-fi mobile


Just a little something that I made for a friend's baby.....you know, the usual baby mobile which includes the Star Wars Millennium Falcon.... 



..... the Star Trek Enterprise (TNG) .....



.... the Dr. Who Tardis ship ....


.... and Firefly's Serenity ship.


I consider each ship a little work of art, and really enjoyed stitching all the details to them! I'd say the Serenity was the most challenging ship to make, with all its pieces and parts. The crazy ocd part of me couldn't help myself in stitching all the tiny "lights" on the Enterprise. Though the Millennium Falcon does capture my heart :) 

My lovely significant other, Corey, added music box style music of each of the theme songs inside the yellow circular "moon" that hangs in the center. There's a button to trigger each song, and a velcro opening to change out the batteries.  I like to think we make a great team - analog + digital!
