How it works
Iâ€™ll be making a series of blog posts with videos and photos detailing each step of sewing, stuffing and assembling your balloons. Â You can make just one or create a whole mobile. You can sew along with me, ask questions, and share your experienceÂ and advice with others.
Posts will go up here on the blog, on ourÂ facebookÂ eventÂ and pics will be posted to twitter and instagram.Â Please get involved and leave comments, ideas, questions and photos. The more the merrier!
What weâ€™ll cover
First up Iâ€™ll be posting about fabric and supplies for the Hot Air balloons. Actual sewing wonâ€™t start until the 20th of February so youâ€™ve got time to gather your supplies and order a balloon craft kitÂ or gather together your own fabric and supplies.
Iâ€™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 youâ€™ll need
Youâ€™ll need the Hot Air Balloon Pattern and you can choose any fabric and felt, or purchase one of our balloon kits here.Â Tune back in this Valentines dayÂ for a full post about fabric and supplies.
Please share this with all your crafty friends, letâ€™s sew balloons together!
