I just made this yesterday and finished it up today. I really love it and it looks so professional. My daughter saw it yesterday and said she almost thought it was store bought except it still had the messy edges. Here it is finished:http://www.flickr.com/photos/inthesun/1922684136/
That's the prettier side.http://www.flickr.com/photos/inthesun/1921858269/in/set-72157602482384519/
I tried to center a fussy cut piece into it but I think the print was too large or I should have spread the points out further.http://www.flickr.com/photos/inthesun/1921858607/in/set-72157602482384519/
For the band I sewed one of the fabrics into a tube and glued it on instead of a ribbon.
The only this this pattern does not tell you is that I estimated it took about 160 flat head pins just to do one ball. By the time I put on the third row of pins I needed to use a thimble because my finger hurt from pushing them in. One 2.5 inch X 44 inch wide strip each of 3 colors is all the fabric you need to do both sides. They also get surprisingly heavy. I'm going to make as many more as I can
