Daydreams nursery mobile sewing pattern

Make your own Daydreams Nursery Mobile with our free sewing pattern.

This cute felt mobile is our 2nd pattern release as part of the Sew Crafty Design Team. After working on our cloud baby mobile I wanted to extend our pattern collection¬†for nursery mobiles and along the way I became inspired by sailboats. I can see sailboats becoming my new obsession ūüôā This pattern is really very simple to make, it is all sewn together with a simple running stitch – hand sewing all the way, so no need for a sewing machine.

Star:

Using 2 strands of the mint green embroidery thread/floss thread your sewing needle and place a small knot at the bottom of the thread.

Taking note of the ‘leave open for stuffing’ area marked on the star sewing pattern, insert the needle between the 2 star felt pieces and secure the knot inside.

Work a running stitch around the circumference of the star stopping to stuff lightly before closing completely with the running stitch.

Next complete the 2nd star.

Taking the hoop, separate the two sections.

On the inner section tie the embroidery thread/floss as shown in the image below, creating a cross in the middle of the hoop.

Replace the outside hoop.

For all of this section you will be using the 6 strands of embroidery thread/floss.

Next cut off 6 different lengths of the embroidery thread/floss. I played with the lengths as I was putting the mobile together.

Using the large eye needle, sew one of the threads in place at the top of the star and knot the thread onto one of the threads inside the hoop.

Repeat on the cloud and the 2 sailboats, knotting them onto the other 3 thread sections.

Finally sew the star to the cloud leaving a small space between them, when they are hanging.

Then sew the final piece of thread onto the top of the cloud, tie this onto the middle section of the crossed thread.

To hang up measure out a length of thread and attach to the middle section of the cross extending upwards.

Your mobile is now ready.
