Temari ball – S4 Rainbow Bands
December 17, 2014
I’m prepping mari balls for an upcoming one-day class: a Simple 4 division in multi-coloured bands. Essential for stitching obi since about 80-90% of all temari have an equator “waist sash”.
Apart from the skills of starting/finishing stitches and wrapping a band, there’s also the skill of interlocking, best achieved by reversing the needle as you pass under a previously stitched band.
Stick around for more images of my class preparation in the coming days and weeks!
