Okay for this block you will need http://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/_files/hotairballooncolouring.pdf print this, i found the basket was too small and looked odd so i used a 2 inch square for the basket.

Number the balloon sections so you can put them back together again, cut them apart then baste them to your fabrics.

After that sew them back together putting the flat edges together at the base of the hot air balloon.

Baste your 2 inch square i found this fabric in my stash its what i call my chicken wire fabric.

Then press well remove papers and thread, pin well to your background fabric and Applique it to your back ground fabric. If you want you can add some black stitching from the edge of the balloon down to the basket.

Any questions please ask.

Sorry ive split the photos and writing to see if it would post easier.

Lots of love

Francesxxx
