Make a felt hot air balloon mobile

Hot air balloons are floating all around the internet lately. I'm not sure they'll ever reach owl status, but their popularity is certainly on the rise. Make a colorful hot air balloon mobile from felt using How Joyful's free pattern (via Craft Gossip). Or if paper is more your speed, try the gorgeous woven versions at PaperMatrix— they've added new designs #3 and #4, plus a basic video tutorial on how to assemble the balloons.

I refuse to let Courtney see this! We have enough projects lined up, what with your kitty and alphabet printables! ;)

Used to make those with my grandmother when I was a kid. These are beautiful! Don't even have the strange combinations of colours ours used to have (of course grandma let me pick them). We also made a large baloon as an advent calender and attached 24 little sand sacks with tiny sweets inside. Oh, nice to reminisce about those days...
