Patti, your Christmas balls are beautiful!  I just spent an hour browsing through "kimekomi fabric balls" and watched a video or two on youtube.  Very nice, I may make one or two of them.  Thank you.

Patti - I bet your Christmas balls go over like hot cakes - very very cute!  what did you stuff them with?  Regular batting?

they are actually covered smooth styrofoam balls.  sections are cut, batting put on top of the sections and fabric tucked in the cuts.  then decorative cord covering the divisions is glued on.  So actually fairly simple.  I am finding the hardest part  is drawing the divisions on the balls.  I did the easiest two in the book so far.  Japanese Kimekomi Fast, Fun and Fabulous Fabric Handballs by Barbara Suess and Kathleen Hewitt.

Patti - that is just too sweet!  I think I saw that book a while back - but since I gave my tree away to my son and dil, I didn't think I would need new ornaments - but making them for a bazaar or to sell at a quilt show - now that would be sweet.  You are too clever my friend!  Very nice job!

Thanks Gini for the sale update. I'm not sure my purse thanks you though. LOL I ordered 16 yards of goodies.

I love these!  I have all the parts to make some but haven't yet.  Did you put fleece under the fabric?
