Suggested Color Gradation for the Gobbi

Hi crafty reader!  If you’re planning on making a Gobbi mobile, I have some info that might come in handy (don’t hate me if you already started, because I just got this from a helpful friend who’s taking the A to I course!  You can always make another one; babies LOVE these mobiles!).  Here are the suggested DMC embroidery floss shades for each of the potential Gobbi colors:

Yellow: 745 – 744 – 743 – 972 – 742

Green: 703 – 702 – 701 – 700 – 699

Teal: 3811 – 3766 – 3810 – 3809 – 3808

Blue: 3752 – 827 – 813 – ??? – 3760 (note: there’s missing shade, I’ll update this if/when she figures out what it should be)

Pink: 3608 – 3607 – 718 – 917 – 915

Purple: 211 – 209 – 553 – 552 – 550

Cranberry: 816 – 3831 – 3832 – 3833 – 761

Rust: 349 – 350 – 351 – 352 – 353

Here’s the DMC color chart so you can see what these shades look like before you go shopping.  Ooooooh, makes me want to run to my nearest craft store and stock up on thread!!

  1. What a great resource! I found myself standing in front of the DMC stand for AGES trying to decide on the perfect shades when I made my gobbi mobiles (for my now 2.5yr old!). Next time around I’ll come straight here instead.

    … And thanks also for sharing your thoughts on so many great topics – I look forward to following along as Zach grows up.

    All the best,
    Cathy 🙂

  2. I have to make a mobile at my next training seminar and this is so helpful!!

    I would love to know if you ever figured out what the missing blue color was? I know it’s been years now but I’m hopefully optimistic.

I'd love to know what YOU think!
