And while I was away I did a bit of hand stitching....

 I started making another indigo ball using paper piecing.

 I cut out 20 paper triangles and 12 paper pentagons
and tacked the fabric over them.

 And then stitched...

 2 hemispheres,

then I removed the paper before the last few stitches

The filling I am using has come from one the old kimonos.
It was a layer of padding, for warmth I suppose.

Done (almost).


  1. Lovely! I think I should make one in bright colours for my granddaughter!

  2. Wow, this is so lovely and a great way to showcase those indigos!
