Baby Hot Air Balloon Mobile

The last week of so I have gradually been working on this cute hand stitched baby mobile to hang in the baby's room. It is made of felt and is inspired by the many patterns of a similar nature that can be purchased online. I simply drew up my own pattern and followed my instincts as to how it should be constructed.
I used the inside ring of an embroidery hoop for the ring at the top and painted it white. I had considered doing the sewing by machine (and you easily could), but I decided that it's cuter with the chunky hand stitches.

Each hot air balloon is blanket stitched and stuffed.

Six balloons hang from the frame in blue, pink, forest green and tan.

Hopefully the baby likes it as much as I do!
