Sarubobo mobiles

I made two style of Sarubobo mobiles.

The one is my favorite style, flying sarubobo.
I used my favorite frog print cotton for them. But it seems too green, so I added my favorite buttons on the cotton tape.

Today, I made more twelve sarubobo plushes with black and pink cotton fabrics.
I thought how to hang them, and decided to put a coin in their hands.

I hand stitched with Sashiko cotton embroidery thread on the coins, and tie them with linen code.

After I made them, I noticed that they coud stand also (* v *).

I made four mobiles with coins, so now I have four sarubobo plushes left.
Now they are watching me and saying to me, "What do you put in our hands?".

Mai these are gorgeous and adorable! Sadly all I do is collect fabric as I have 2 toddlers keeping me too busy to sew. I am amazed at what you do. Also about the chili beans did you add spices to season? That may be why it was too light.

Hi, I love your gorgeous blog! Jacqueline recommended your blog to me. What a lovely fabric shop & bags! My favourite is the bag with the big blue leaf and pink checks. Could you please let me know the pattern number, as I would like to make this bag? Many thanks! Wini

Hello Wini,
The pattern of the bag is on the book. So you cannot see the bag in the site. Also, you cannot get the pattern through the site. I'm sorry.
Thank you very much for your comment!

I've never commented before, but I adore everything you make. I will try and make a few sarubobo of my own! :)


Wini said...

Hi, thanks for your reply! What a shame about the pattern. I just realised that I posted my comment about the hand bags on this Sarabobo post instead of the handbag post, and I'm sorry about that! I love your Sarubobo, they are soooo cute :)

Hi, I was wondering, what kind of fabric did you use to make these sarubobos? I tried to make one with felt material from joann fabrics and it was cute and everything and i added my own twist to it but it wasnt quite the same and it was alot larger.

i like to make alot of sewn things for my boyfriend as little 'i love you' messages/gifts to remind him that im always thinking of him.

mairuru said...

Hello Britney,
I use Japanese cotton fabrics, not so thick. I've never made them with felt or thick fabric, but I think it's hard to make it in the size with thick fabrics.
