First Try at TemariJanuary 13, 2008 at 3:31 pm | Posted in General | Leave a comment
I’ve always admired the colourful patterns of Temari balls when I saw pictures of them somewhere. So, when I stumbled upon Temari für Einsteiger some weeks ago, the book followed me home. And here’s the result of my first try:
And here’s a view from a different direction:
This ball is made from a styrofoam ball 6 cm in diameter, wrapped in yellow sewing thread and decorated with Nr. 5 Perle Cotton. Wrapping the ball in sewing thread is not really an enjoyable activity, and I think I stopped a bit too early, not thinking that I’d need to hide all of the perle cotton ends in there. So those ends are visible in some places, but hey, it’s my first project, and I enjoyed making it and really like the result.
Here’s a nice English-language site I found while looking Temari up on the web. Enjoy!
