I've been making up lots of bundles of felt squares today and taking the opportunity to do a bit of stock-taking while I'm at it... so my house has been covered with colourful felt all day! (starting to look a bit tidier now, but only just).
No time for sewing today, so instead some snaps of an order I finished a little while ago which has just arrived at its destination - a custom mobile in bright modern colours.
Each custom mobile order starts out with my customer & I working together to pick colours, and these were the yummy ones we went with:Then I got to work cutting out lots and lots of shapes, leaving lots of colourful scraps left over. I never use a pattern, just mix shapes and colours freehand to make each mobile unique.
After much sewing, eventually all the discs were finished:Then I arranged them into strands and stitched them all onto their ribbons ready for hanging in their new home:Finally I took lots of snaps to record the piece before I put it in the post to its new owner!
