All the rain lately made me think of another cute baby mobile I have seen on the net. So I decided to make one.

It took a good few hours as I sew every bit with hand, but enjoyed it a lot. I love to to see how some fabric or wool can come into life.

I have been making these things for our new arrival; but this time I felt bad that R has got nothing from me lately; well nothing I have made, so I changed my mind and gave it to her. (I am sure will feel this kind of guilt many times after we have our second daughter with us. ) It hangs on her ceiling lamp; and she really likes it, but tells me every time, she will give it to the little baby when she comes. šŸ™‚

1. Cut two of all the shapes; clouds and raindrops. You can make it in different colours: blue cloud with gray and white drops….etc Depending on the look you want.

2. Sew drops. Leave a small opening on top and bottom to able to stuff it and to fit the string, which will hold the drops together.

3. Sew the strings to the bottom of the cloud, and sew the ribbon to the top part. Sew the two clouds together. LeaveĀ  a small hole before sewing it all to stuff it , all nice and fluffy. Ready to hang.

Rain

It has been raining a lot here in the last couple of weeks. Roisin loves the rain. She stands outside on the balcony in full gear enjoying it. We watched the lighting and thunder the other evening together. It was great fun! I love it too!

We’ve used to go for walks and got soaked in the warm rain whenever we had a chance with my husband. I guess we should start doing thatĀ  again in theĀ  summer.
