I was delighted when Oh My Handmade asked me to do a guest post this month. Oh My Handmade is a brilliant site, led by Jessika Hepburn. It brings together a small group of independent artisans, designers, and industry experts. Each day they share with you a little bit of what they love and know. Check it out. It’s a fantastic resource for anyone interested in the handmade world.
I decided to share my pears and apples mobile with Oh My. I’ve been wanting to make one for a while now. Don’t ask me why! I’m not sure it turned out quite how I planned (I was kind of hoping for a more retro feel) but I like it all the same.
The nicest thing is that it’s really easy to make – all you need is some paper, thread, sellotape and a pair of scissors.
It looks very beautiful twirling around and I imagine will look even better when it’s catching some sunshine….roll on spring!
I scanned my shapes in so all you need to do is print it out this pdf and cut out the shapes which you can use as a template. For those of you without printers…simply open the pdf, lay a white piece of paper on your computer screen and gently trace.
