<p>I've made a felt Solar System mobile, and entered it in the Remix contest here. Thanks for being the inspiration for my project! <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Felt-Solar-System-Mobile/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/Felt-Solar-System-...</a></p>
've done it! &gt;^_^&lt; I didn't change the length of the distance of the planets, I prefered to put them quite evenly. The photo is a bit dark, I'll try to get one lighter later. There's my Enterprise NX-01 near the planets ;D<br>
Woooow!!! I really love it! Nice work! Thank you so much :-)
Thank you to you for giving away your beaufitul idea. Btw, I filled the planets with wool (the one in the pillows), so they were a bit too haevy for the crocheted chains, I I put a transparent nylon yarn thru all the system. :)
How many stitches there are at the &quot;equator&quot; of the sun? Do you started with 6 stitches? It's just to have an idea to start. Thank you.
I used a styren ball the size of 60 millimeter for the Sun. So there Are 60 stitches at the &quot; equater&quot; of the sun. And yes, I started with 6 stitches :)
Thank you very much :)
This is wonderful!
Thank you!!

Thank you for the information!<br>I'll check these up :)
Beautiful and very elegant.<em> </em>I expecially love Jupiter : <em>bellissimo</em> !<br> Ciao<br> A.<br> <br>
Nicely done, I'd love to make something Saturn looks good and a like you did the strips on Jupiter.
Thanks! I was careful not to use too many different colors so as not to fancy the whole design of mobile. I love these strips on Jupiter too :)
Very nice. Have you got patterns for the planets?
Thanks! All I did was just a single crochet according to the size of ball. Better you change the color of each planets as you like!
