Hot Air Balloon Mobile

By Susan | Comments: 6 | January 21, 2014

The first of my Sewing Adventures for 2014.

Hot Air Balloon

This fantastic mobile made from panels available from Craft Schmaft. I just adore the entire aesthetic of Craft Schmaft so expect to see a lot of their patterns and panels featured here.

The mobile itself is incredibly easy to put together and you only need to straight stitch and do a little bit of hand sewing. In fact the biggest challenge for me was getting the dowel cut for the actual hanger (mostly because we don’t own a saw). One of the things that makes it so easy is there is a fab Hot Air Balloon Making App you can get. Which makes everything wonderfully clear and makes you wish that all craft and sewing projects came with their own follow along app!

So if you want to add a bit of cheer to your sewing room or make one as a present it will only take maybe an hour or two from start to finish and is perfect for sewing the balloons and then doing all the stuffing and hand sewing in front of the telly!

      Aren’t they just the cutest? these ones are a present for someone and I almost cried when I posted them yesterday.
      Will certainly be making some more to keep for myself.
