Fabric Ball Tutorial

Liz and I made these fabric balls to hang in the store window.  It's very simple to do but it does take awhile and uses a good amount of fabric.  We used Robert Kaufman Kona cottons in 2 shades of the same color for each ball.

Here are the tools you need: styrofoam balls in varying sizes. For this tutorial we used a medium sized one.  We used about 2 yards of fabric in total. You need a rotary cutter fitted with a pinking blade or pinking shears. You also need a hot glue gun, a good amount of glue sticks and some fishing line to hang the ball with.  Groovy tunes  are optional.

Cut your fabric into 4" strips and then into 4" squares using your pinking blade.

Fold one of your squares into a petal shape:

Place a good sized dot of hot glue on the ball:

Place the end of the petal in the glue and hold for a few seconds:

Repeat with a square in the second shade:

Keep alternating squares and gluing:

until your ball is full and has no bald spots!

Get your fishing line and tie it around the ball like ribbon on a present:

Tie a knot in the fishing line and fluff the fabric around the fishing line:
