I now have a shop on zazzle http://www.zazzle.com.au/busyspider* or redbubble www.redbubble.com/people/melaniedann

This is a very simple effective way to add interest and colour to a kids bedroom in a fun way. You can use this as a wall hanging or above a cot and it is very easy to make with it being hand sown. 

You will need:

  • Needle, scissors & thread, I used a cream thread because i wanted the stitch to show
  • Felt Fabric in blue, red & cream. You can buy A4 sheets from Lincraft or a craft store
  • Stuffing to pad out the felt giving a 3.D effect
  • Rainbow ribbon thread or multicolour ribbon
  • cream ribbon for the mobile to hang from

Step one
Get your scissors, different colours of felt sheets & your ribbon ready.
When cutting out the shapes remember you will need two of everything exsept the ribbon lenghts because you will be sowing them together like a sandwich and stuffing them to get the 3.D effect

I have laid everything out for you to see below. Now it is all there for you to sow.

Step two
Sow the face to each mushroom cutout and the same with the cloud to add a bit of humour xx It is easyer to do this before you stuff them because you are working with a flat sheet of felt.

Step three

Now you are going to sow and stuff, start with your mushroom stalks. Sow around the edge using a playful chunky stitch with the cream thread.
When you reach the top sandwich the stalk inbetween the red mushroom heads and carry on stiching round the edge of the mushroom head you have just added

When you reach the top of each mushroom sandwich the rainbow ribbon in making sure you go over the stitch which holds the ribbon in a couple if times so it dosn't come out. Then carry on round the rest of the mushroom head sowing and stuffing until it is all sealed. Do the same with the other two mushrooms and then the cloud. Making sure you also sandwich & sow the rainbow ribbon from the mushrooms into the bottom of the cloud.

Don't forget to attach you cream ribbon to the top of the cloud
