Old City Window Display

As a part of DesignPhiladelphia, the businesses in the Old City district of Philadelphia are paired with designers to create an interesting window display. This year, I chose to participate and was paired with MG Real Estate, located on 20 N. 3rd Street, right above Market Street. They have a wonderfully huge window!

Vote for your favorite display via web or text my window number #3939 to 215-259-VOTE!

I wanted to create an ethereal and natural looking installation, utilizing the depth of the window. After thinking about how to use the space, I decided on making MANY paper mobiles as inspired by oh happy day's blog post.

In total, there are 78 hanging mobiles in the window.

Step One.

Doodle on hundreds of feet of vellum.

Step Two

Cut up the vellum to 1" x 3" strips

Step Three

Get to sewing!
