Rainy Cloud Mobile and Ever Kelly fabric

Ever since I bought Ever Kelly's Storybook Lane fabrics and patterns, I've been wanting to make a cloud mobile with the "Curvy Stripe" fabric. At last I've come up with this. I hung it up last night near Lucy's changing table and surprised her when I first changed her this morning!


Mobiles are a really fun way for teaching toddlers new words and concepts. Even if they were completely useless, I'd still love mobiles! I'm a massive fan, starting from Alexander Calder... I was very lucky to have the possibility of seeing an exhibition of Calder's work at the Pompidou in Paris. It was incredible, unforgettable.


Back to Storybook Lane Patterns, I have to get a move on because at the moment I've only made two finger puppets and this zippered house pouch! They are really fun and I have two girls who can't wait to play with the whole set! 




I'm hoping Kelly Lee-Creel @ Ever Kelly will soon come up with another creative fabric collection soon!
