1  Corduroy fabric patchwork balls (edited to add pattern source) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Crafty Panties on: September 17, 2008 09:25:09 AM
I love corduroy.  I found some yummy chocolate brown corduroy at a thrift store.  I paired it with some gorgeous gold printed fabric by Free Spirit to make some patchwork balls.  I made two versions.  I think these are my fave fabric balls I've ever made.  And that is my daughter holding each one. 

edit:  I got the pattern from Patchwork Puzzle Balls by Jinny Beyer.

I made some patchwork balls for my friend's kids.  She had twin girls this summer and she also has a 3 yr. old girl.  I made one for each of them but didn't assign any one ball to any one child.  I figured the 3 yr. old would want to have her pick.  I love making these patchwork balls - I've made several for my daughter.  I got the patterns from Jinny Beyer's book Patchwork Puzzle Balls.  Here they are:

Ball 3:  I only got one decent shot of this one.  I gave it away before I realized it.

At pretty much the last minute, here's my entry.  It's a quote from the movie Carrie.  Carrie's mom says it to her, to which Carrie replies, "Breasts, Mama.  They're called breasts, and every woman has them."  I love it.

I went crazy on the stitching, I know.  I've been wanting to do some blackwork, so I did whole hella lotta blackwork.  I just started doing it and it just got denser and denser...and I kept thinking I was crazy the whole time.  I could have made it so much simpler  Roll Eyes  I started filling in the "D", then realized that I really didn't need to.  But I thought that taking all those little backstitches out would be really tough and would screw up the "D".  I used cross stitch and back stitch, and I mostly got the stitches from Erica Wilson's Embroidery Book.

My temari balls, that is.  I've been making these on and off for the past couple years.  I've made close to 30 of them.  Temari is a traditional Japanese craft.  Some fabric is wadded up and thread is wound around it a bunch of times until you have a nice round ball.  Then it's divided into sections and a pattern is embroidered on the surface.  Here's my most recent two:
