hot air balloon mobile for Allison

Allison, my friend, is having a baby girl. Her and her husband are big fans of the movie UP, so they wanted a hot air balloon mobile for her nursery.

It needed to match the Brooklyn bedding set by Pottery Barn, so I got a pillow sham from the set so that I could color match the fabric perfectly.

So cute, right?

I made the woven baskets for this set because I've been dying to ever since I made the baskets for the Little Red dolls and realised that her goodie basket was the perfect size for these mobiles.

I loved mixing and matching all the fabrics for the balloons. Usually I try to make all 4 balloons different, but with my limited purple fabric choices (it was hard to match that dusty purple!) I just mixed them all up.

  1. Oh, this is all so pretty, and when I saw the baskets I thought it might be from Little Red. How cool is that? I love the thick/thin variation. Soooooo cool.
