Happy Mothers' Day!
Although my babies will always be my babies, I don't really have any tiny wee babies in my life right now. However for some reason, I was struck with the urge to make a baby mobile.
I decided on a soft plush cloud as the main part, with raindrops hanging down, and then thought, why not raindrops in a rainbow of colours?
Why not, indeed.
I made a few stencils and cut out the shapes from poplin,
sewed each one most of the way around with (tiny tiny!) blanket stitch, stuffed them and sewed them closed - first the cloud
and then the raindrops.
How cute do they all look together?! Ahh.
I strung the raindrops from the cloud,
wondered who I could possibly give it to as a new-baby gift, and then for some reason...
made two more.
Anybody want a raincloud mobile?
