This fabric hot air balloon would be so sweet hanging in a baby’s nursery or child’s room! Or, how about hovering over a reading nook? Stephanie from The Crafty Kitty shares a free pattern for making it. The shapes are all flat (with the exception of the basket, which has the side piece sewn on to the circle base), with grommets and lacing to pull them into a 3-d shape. Go to The Crafty Kitty to get the free pattern and a tutorial showing how to assemble it.
