Poor thing, I can imagine your frustration. Perhaps an array of buttons. They seam to be in, & you could even make button jewellry to go with it, so it looked like it should have been that way all along. You could use them all different shades of the one colour, or cluster many different colours that go together. Good luck!
I made these today, only I just used plain chocolate (not flavoured) to cover the balls, and then sprinkled icing sugar with cocoa! I tried one, they are so decadent! I don't think I could have more than one at a time (which is probably just as well, considering my waistline!). I think I'm going to have to stop making these yummy recipes or I'll be in serious weight trouble! lol
Thanks for that, we have the chocolate melt discs, but I'm not sure if I've ever seen flavoured ones! I'll be on the look out! We don't have Walmart here, yet! I know what I can substitute it with now! I'm going to try this yummy sounding snack tomorrow!
when you say crackers, what sort do you mean? I'm from Australia, and our crackers are savoury, like cheese crackers etc? and when you say Skor, do you mean like Scorch peanut bars? Trouble translating here! lol Although I do have baby brain, so it could just be going over my head anyway!
Thank you for your comments on my christmas ornament, I procrastinated at it like crazy, even sewing the side seams, I'd do maybe one or two side joins per day! lol, I suppose with a 1 year old it's to be expected a little, but I seam to start so many projects at the same time
I think all of the christmas ornaments on this site are just beautiful, and are so inspiring, sequins and beads would look beautiful on these balls, and would cut down on so much of the sewing time.
I also found, just a tip, if you are embroidering onto black or dark material and don't have a white pencil to mark where you want to embroider you can use a sharp piece of soap (I just broke one of those hotel size soaps in half and it gave a reasonably sharp edge), my Mum has some in her freezer, now I do too, it made it so much easier!
I finally finished my christmas ball! lol, only took a couple of weeks! to be fair I did make my Nan a bag and have almost finished a poppet, and a kissing ball, so I've dabbled in a few things, but here is my first of many christmas balls, I filled it with potpourri I haven't hung it with a ribbon, as I need to get to the shops, but have used some thread for the time being! The next ones may be a bit more simple, to speed up the process for this year!
Pretty much just copied your ball (only my stitches aren't quite as neat!), Leelou, thanks for the pattern!
