DIY Hot Air Balloon Mobile for your Kids’ Bedroom

Kids Bedroom Hot Air Balloon Mobile:

Create a beautiful Hot Air Balloon Mobile, or single air balloon, with this simple sewing pattern. It seems like new babies bring out our craftiness, doesn’t it? Mesmerize your (friend’s/sister’s) baby for hours on end with these floating* hot air balloons. (* In reality, the top of the balloons are attached to a painted embroidery hoop). So clever!)

The mobile is not really only for kids bedroom. I can see myself hanging one of these in the sunroom, or the kitchen, which happens to be the ‘Travel’ corner in my home’s Feng Shui bagua. A hot air balloon is such a magnificent symbol of freedom and fun.

Still want to drift off a bit more even though you had a lovely vacation this summer? Then, how about creating a darling mobile for the kids bedroom and dream of where you’d be flying the next time you’ll have the chance….
