Felt Hot Air Balloon Mobile

Sew these air balloons and decorate your kid’s room!
While little girls dream of becoming ballet dancers and are easily satisfied with Paper Ballerinas toys, boys have more over-the-ground needs.

Once my son asked me to help him to decorate his bedroom with Homemade Clouds when he took up his aircraft modelling hobby. Now he is even more into flying and his latest interests focus on is the oldest successful human-carrying flights - hot air balloons. Needless to say, immediate bedroom redecoration is inevitable. Joy Kelly from How Joyful presents Felt Hot Air Balloon Mobile which might turn out to be in handy. The one shown on her website are designed for a baby, but I’m planning to sew a bigger version of them.
