Kevin and I made a trip to Odessa yesterday for a doctor appointment, some grocery shopping and a couple other items. One of which was styrofoam balls. I was really shocked at the price of these items. For 6 balls ....3 inch in diameter...the cost was 5.99! I was really expecting to pay like 25 cents each. LOL. I almost did not purchase them, but I really wanted to try creating some. So I went ahead and splurged.
The one pictured above; first attempt...is a little off kilter in measurements and I ended up with one small pucker that no matter what I tried would not go away. After fitting in the fabric...I decided it needed some frills. Out came my box filled with embroidery threads, beads, laces and bias tape and beads.
With this one, I decided to use these star decorations that someone had given me and I have never used. I really liked them...even though I should have taken more time and centered them appropriately. Very often, my excitement over a project takes prescedence over doing things correctly.
