  1. Using the template cut two cloud shade pieces. Cut out the clouds and set them to the side. Adhere one side of each shade piece together creating a long strip.
  2. Tie string to four spots on a hoop to hang the shade, leaving at least 12”-15”of string at the ends. Tie a smaller hoop to the other side of the large hoop (side opposite the strings), attaching in four spots as well. The small hoop should hang a few inches lower.
  3. Adhere the long strip of cloud shade to the large hoop. Trim if needed.
  4. Adhere some of the cloud shapes to the small hoop to show through the cloud holes in the shade.
  5. Cut more cloud shapes and raindrops using the template. Layer the remaining cloud shapes in different sizes. Sew the layered clouds and raindrops together, leaving a long tail on each to make several long groupings.
  6. Hang the cloud and raindrop strings from the small hoop.   
  • Instead of using embroidery hoops inside the mobile, try using or metal rings instead.
  • Use this to accent a nursery, play room, preschool class, and more.
  • Add in additional color cardstock, printed cardstock, stamped designs, or assorted embellishments to personalize the mobile.
