Its World Space week and I have joined a Space blog hop. If you have space based posts please link them below. I'm linking up my latest craft project:
My friends are breeding and as a result we are having many baby showers. I made my last pregnant friend a Gobbi Mobile so with a new baby shower looming I set to work. I decided to be slightly more adventurous this time having (or so I thought) mastered the art of making felt balls. I decided to make a Solar System mobile. So with my trusts Ladybird Mini - Mad About Space book as a reference I set about making a stack of little planets.
This was as much a stash busting exercise as it was a philanthropic gesture to a dear chum, so rather than just make one set, I decided to make two.Curly Birds handy tutorial, which had I read before embarking on this project would have saved me some time needle felting the lumps of wool into decent spheres post wet felting. Any how despite my best efforts to the contrary I seemed to manage successfully to make 18 planets.
8" Cross Stitch Embroidery Hoop (the wooden ones are very cheap - unless you are my preggy friend in which case I spent a fortune, honest!).
