Purely by accident – I stumbled across this website tonight http://www.fjx.co.jp/sewingcom/index.html although it is in Japanese – I think the instructions and measurements are clear enough that even a beginner sewer should be able to create these!  If you create anything from this website – please be sure to show it off to us!

Traditional Tamari balls:

There others online too... this one is not good as some others I have seen Just search for " Free Website Translation " and look around. I have a Free translation on my site so other people can translate it to their language and if they Email me in another laguage I can use the service to translate it and respond.
