Hot Air Balloon Ornament

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I learned three new things; how to make one of these ornaments, use fabric stiffner and about mini printables. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I found that the ropes from the basket to the balloon were very fragile after they were stiffened. It may have been just that my thread was really old but keep this in mind if you plan to make something like this.

What you will need

  • I used leftover crochet thread

Hi-The pattern is from an old Christmas Crochet Gala magazine (c) 1989. I looked online not expecting to find the magazine or pattern but there it is on Ebay ! That's the magazine the pattern is called Hot- Air Balloon Ornament and is on page 4 with a pic of it on page 7 in little girl colors no less. :) Good Luck! http://www.ebay.com/itm/CHRISTMAS-CROCHET-GALA-MAGAZINE-30-EXCELLENT-PATTERNS-/291060619388
