As long as you give yourself enough of a seam allowance, the felt should sew just fine. The monkeys’ bodies honestly look hand-stitched, but a machine would, of course, be faster.

Just make sure you get nice quality felt, and not stuff that just tears apart.

I love this!

Felt is rather easy to stitch. You just need to make sure your needle is sharp and use a small stitch in order to ensure no fiber-ful ‘leaks’ out the seams.

I agree, felt isn’t that hard to sew. 

Give yourself plenty of time to sew and to put the mobile together and you should do great. 

It looks like the bananas are actually maybe hot glued pieces of felt.  Same thing with the other features.  You may want to experiment with types of glue to ensure that it sticks well and small pieces don’t fall off into the crib.
