Cloud 9 with template

Cloud mobile for Antea's crib. The top cloud is filled with both rice and poly-fil to give it weight so it hangs over the edge.
The initial reason for making the mobile was to cover an ugly notice that is painted onto the head board in a very visible area and cannot be removed.
You can download the template for the shapes here.
The shapes are sewn using 3 strands of embroidery floss in blanket stitch. The two clouds are attached with a 2-stitch i-cord in cotton yarn. The drops attach to the big cloud with 6 strands of embroidery floss.
