Ready Steady SEW! Hot air balloon sew-along

Announcing the hot air balloon sew-along! Begining on Monday the 20th February, I will be going through, step by step, the process of making and sewing a hot air balloon mobile. You’re welcome to sew-along and share your balloons with me on instagram or twitter! #HotAirSewAlong.

How it works

I’ll be making a series of blog posts with videos and photos detailing each step of sewing, stuffing and assembling your balloons.  You can make just one or create a whole mobile. You can sew along with me, ask questions, and share your experience and advice with others.
Posts will go up here on the blog, on our facebook event and pics will be posted to twitter and instagram. Please get involved and leave comments, ideas, questions and photos. The more the merrier!

What we’ll cover

First up I’ll be posting about fabric and supplies for the Hot Air balloons. Actual sewing won’t start until the 20th of February so you’ve got time to gather your supplies and order a balloon craft kit or gather together your own fabric and supplies.
I’ll begin with cutting and sewing up the balloon tops, then move onto felt baskets, clouds, bunting and assembling it all together.
The sew-along will finish on the 04th March, all in good time to show it off at Easter!

What you’ll need

You’ll need the Hot Air Balloon Pattern and you can choose any fabric and felt, or purchase one of our balloon kits here. Tune back in this Valentines day for a full post about fabric and supplies.
Please share this with all your crafty friends, let’s sew balloons together!
