I've been seeing these balls around a bit, even bought a kit, but hadn't tried it before. Then the latest Inspirations had this temari design in it (Oliver Twist by Barbara Suess) and I gave it a shot.

Took me three tries  Embarrassed but I got there in the end. Now all I want to do is make more of them... this stuff's addictive!

I've been mesmerized by temari for ages now, but never tried it... where do you find a kit?!

I bought a kit in a department store in Hiroshima - don't know how useful that is! But the one in the photo I just did following the instructions in the magazine, although I used a styrofoam ball because I'm lazy like that. It doesn't really need much materials: a styrofoam ball (or a sock and some filler), some yarn, a spool of sewing thread and some embroidery floss (I used a pink #5 perle cotton in this one).

I think the woman who designed it (link in first post) does courses and stuff, so she may sell kits as well. Otherwise there seem to be a ton of sites with patterns on them. I was checking this one out this morning: http://www.temarikai.com/

Oh, that is incredible. I too could stare at it forever.   Cool

My man loves all things Japanese, and I think this could be the craft that would get him into embroidery...he keeps telling me how simple it is as he sits and watches me work!


Thanks (I think) for the site links, now I have a new craft to obsess over!
