Sailboat Baby Mobile in Patterned Papers


As with most of my pieces this mobile came about because of a request. This time my sister was having a baby and it was going to be a little boy with a nautical themed nursery. So I set work finding boat origami models. After a lot of trial and folding I found the best looking origami sail boat. I then had to figure out how to attach the boats to the mobile kit to make it look really nice. I was really happy with the end result and so is my nephew! My sister put it over his changing table and it makes for a much more pleasant diaper changing experience. This fun patterned sailboat mobile is different version than the one I made for my nephew.

This sailboat mobile has 20 boats (2 boats are glued together to make one "boat") that are approx. 6 inches wide, 5 inches tall and 2 inches thick. They have they are made with a fun mix of double sided patterned (polka dots, chevron, houndstooth, stripes, stars, and honeycomb) paper in red, blue, orange, yellow and green. Then white ribbon is glued on to hang them from the mobile kit. Each boat is attached at a different height on the mobile. The boats are light so they move with any breeze or change in air pressure.

This origami sailboat mobile would be perfect in a baby's room, little boy's room, beach house, in nautical themed room or for a baby shower or as a new baby gift.

Total length of mobile is approx. 28" long and total width of the mobile is approx. 20". Metal mobile kit is 22"x16".

This nautical baby mobile has a loop on the top for easy hanging from a hook in the ceiling, so it can be displayed over a crib or a changing table or in front of a window or anywhere really!! It can also be attached to a crib arm just let me know at purchase and I will modify the mobile to be used on a crib arm.

This mobile and all the items in my shop come from a smoke free home and studio.

***There will be some variation in the origami paper used on each mobile because the pieces are handmade and placed, so please expect some variation from the picture.****

Inside display highly recommended. Not for outdoor use. This is not a toy. Please keep out of reach of children.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Custom and personalized orders

    Yes, I can customize pretty much anything in my shop. I can make custom color schemes for any mobile, ornament, boutonniere or bouquet. I can also customize frames, gift sets and mirrors.

    Care instructions

    All origami items are made with paper and can not be cleaned with any cleaner or damp cloths. I recommend dusting with a feather duster or Swiffer type duster at least once a month. I also recommend using canned air to clean dust out from inside the folds of the origami pieces. Frames and mirrors may be cleaned using a damp cloth.

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    If your item is a gift I am happy to add a gift note (on a handmade card) along with an invoice with no prices on it. Please just leave a note for me at purchase. Some items can be gift wrapped (ornaments, frames and mirrors). There is an extra charge for gift wrapping and can be purchased at checkout.

    Custom Order Policy

    Please note I am happy to make custom orders but they either need to be paid for or have a deposit put down before I start work. Each custom piece is unique and handmade, so they can not be resold if buyers back out before payment. I will send paper samples for approval to make sure orders are what you want.
