Mobile makeover and baby gift

A friend of mine is having a baby girl in May and she asked me to makeover the mobile her son used and make it more girly.  
Here is the before, it is cute sailboats.  Her little guy's nursery was adorable and nautical themed.  I removed the strings by untying them. Then I used the colors in her bedding to inspire a new mobile. 

I used this tutorial by Sister Diane to make the flowers.  I found it through a search on Pinterest.  It is so handy searching there and having all the images come up!! Her flowers in the tutorial are one sided and she uses a button to finish it off.  I made mind 2 sided and just finished them off with a felt circle.  I think it turned out pretty great!!

I also made her a little something quick...
I made a skirt using Dana's Simple skirt tutorial, a few burp cloths and a taggie toy.  I picked up some leggings and a onesie to go with the skirt.  Sewing some pink was pretty fun :)
