This is so neat! I love these hearts. This would be such a great gift for a Baby shower. I've had some trouble reading s similar pattern before but not with this one.

This is a beautiful decoration for a nursery. I like that it is safer than many mobiles I have seen with it's soft components. The pretty hearts and ribbons will look nice as a decoration not only in a baby's room but children and teenagers may like it too according to the colors. I know I would have loved it as a teen.

What a neat idea for a mobile to hang over the crib or changing table as a distraction. The Red Heart Soft is one of my favorite all-purpose yarns. I think the colors come off different in a picture- the colors are more vibrant in person. Using an embroidery hoop is ingenious. A nice baby shower gift idea!

Do you have a pattern for one of these with crochet stars for boys?
