Embroidered Hanging Mobile Project
Complete any nursery with a beautiful embroidered hanging mobile. This project can make a lovely gift for expecting parents, or even your own bundle of joy.
To create this mobile, we used our very own Echidna design pack, Patchy Safari. They’re perfectly suited to all genders and are so cute they’re sure to bring smiles!
Essentials to make an embroidery mobile
Below are some of the essentials we used to create our mobile project. Using these fabulous products will ensure brilliant embroidery results.
Echidna Washaway stabilizer lends support and stability during embroidery then easily dissolves in warm water. It’s ideal for lace, appliques and freestanding projects where both sides of embroidery will be seen. It can also be used as a backing for sheer fabrics like organza or tulle.Buy now
Hot Melt Film
Hot Melt Film is a clear, heat-set film ironed on to an embroidered design to create a badge, which is then ironed onto fabric. The plastic film-like double-sided glue has paper on one side for heat application and provides more permanent adhesion than Hot Melt Web.Buy now
Crystal Organza is great for dimensional embroidery designs such as 3D flowers, butterflies, Christmas decorations, bookmarks and much more. It provides strength and stability to your designs and gives body to your garment.Buy now
These Echidna Designs are great for creating patches, badges or an embroidered baby mobile suitable for all genders! Some of the designs are symmetrical which is great for mirroring, and some can easily be flipped to match back to back. As you would have seen in our event, flipping a design is quick and simple using today's wonderful technology! Just remember, letters and words are not suitable for mirror imaging.
