i made these cute hanging clouds for irelands room. she has vaulted ceilings, and i wanted her room to look like it was outside looking into a house. i hung a banner, i am looking for a kite to hang from the ceiling, and have a picture of a hot air balloon on her dresser…cute. then i hung an old window on the wall as if it were looking in. i still have a bit more i want to do so it’s not all finished, but i want to be sure i don’t buy anything unless it’s perfect for the look.(just gutted the closets, garage, and play area…no more purchases unless they are must haves!!!…and yes that comment was to reinforce myself!)
ireland loves to be outside, especially swinging, so i am trying to make it feel like her room is nestled right outside playing under the sky. she loves her clouds! last night she told me her room was missing a sun…so looks like i will be adding on soon.
it is really simple to do if you are interested, here’s how…
note: do not pre-wash!!!!
cute them out.
note: do not pin them together, you want them to be slightly off cut from one another to look kinda raggy.
sew them together
note: do not pin, it looks cute to have them slightly off kilter.
leave a little unsewn area to stuff later.
wash, dry, iron…
stuff them to your desired fill.
stitch up the holes on machine, then trim off any extra strings from the clouds.
thread the tops with fishing line and hang them at various lengths from the ceiling with tacs.
