Materials: fabric, iron on adhesive, paint, pen and circle for tracing, iron, hot glue gun, split ring, (like what your car keys are on), ribbon, string and embroidery hoop (discard the part with the screw)
2. Trace circles onto the adhesive and onto the fabric. You will need twice as many fabric circles as adhesive circles unless you use one sided adhesive in which case you will need equal amounts of each. I used 6 strands with 4 circles on 3 and 3 on the other 3
4. Tie the thread onto the loop alternating between a thread with 4 circles and 3 circles. I hot glued the thread to the hoop on the inside to secure it in place.
5. Measure out 3 strands of the ribbon for as long or short as you want the mobile to hang. Loop it, string it through the split ring and hot glue or sew the ends together. Then measure one more strand of ribbon and attach it the same way to the split ring. This one will hang from the ceiling.
*Some foot notes - I got this idea from http://sewshesews.wordpress.com/ but tweaked it to fit what I thought I could handle (remember I said I don't sew). I also used ribbon to hang the mobile from the ceiling where Jaime used beads on wire (again, too much for me).
