For this project, I used my CAMEO to make a fun mobile to celebrate spring. (It would also make a great baby gift.)
I covered this umbrella shape (enlarged to the max on my 12” mat) with pretty striped fabric to give it a nice texture but remain stiff. I cut the umbrella once out of pattern paper, then attached a 12” square of sewable fabric interfacing to a 12” square of cotton fabric and cut the umbrella shape once more from the fabric. Then it was easy to iron the fabric directly to the identical paper base with the interfacing acting as the adhesive.
I chose some fun 3D clouds and butterflies, then made my own 3D raindrops by cutting a symmetrical drop in triplicate and putting the three folded pieces together. I attached them along a 14” piece of string every 3” with a glue gun. The strands are just hot-glued in place on the underside of the umbrella.
What kind of mobile will you make?
