Rain Drops Nursery Mobile - tutorial

You can do it. You can make it even if you are a beginner. Sewing together colorful pieces of felt is easier then you think. You can make a rain drops nursery mobile in the couple of hours.


Materials you need: assorted colorful felt - white, blue, purple, aqua, needle and white thread, a pair of scissors, anti bacterial poly filling, assorted cords / wax thread. 
Each row has 5 drops that stay on a cord. Each cord has a loop at the high top for hanging. 


You can hanging it on the ceiling or on the wall, on a baby crib, or on a door, in the trees in your garden, at the entrance.


Cut the rain drop. Find a size that you like. Make 2 big drops for sewing together and other 2 small ones for sewing on the front of one of the big drop.


Arrange them on the table, make a pattern or just put them together in nice rows. 


Make a knot at the end of your cord. Sew together the rain drop, then place the cord inside and sew around. This will the the low end.



For the other rain drop, sew together the pieces.


Place the cord inside.




Sew together the both parts of the drop, fixing the cord inside.


Before finishing, stuff it lightly.




For the top of the thread, make a loop, cut the end and place the knot inside of the drop. Sew along.




Be careful to leave a small distance between drops. You can add some assorted beads too and you can make as long as you want, adding more rain drops. 


You can buy this rain drops garland for your nursery in My Etsy Shop.

Happy sewing.
