Hot Air Balloon Mobile

Since our return from overseas, we seem to be receiving expectant baby news from almost everyone we know. Currently, we know eight couples who are soon to be parents, hence why we have been spending ever other weekend at baby showers...which is great!

My latest crafty antics have, therefore, turned into a succession of presents for bubs! 

The first project I completed was this wee felt hot air balloon mobile for our friends Gary and Kelly, who are expecting their second in under a week's time! Martin helped out by creating the little baskets from oven-bake modelling clay. The balloons were then threaded onto invisible wire and hung from a ribbon wrapped bamboo ring.

I hope their little boy is going to love looking up at these fellas floating above him!
