The Same But Different.

I had thought maybe I had made my last felt embroidered ball, but as I have lots of felt and threads left, why not make another?   
# 28 !  
  It's something I can still see fairly easily, compared with other projects, so maybe one more? ( It is a good portable project.) 
 I then had the idea to vary it a little. Instead of 12 different coloured pentagons; just one colour - blue (in different shades ) . I could make it for a grown up instead of a small child. The idea grew. I decided to use fabric motifs using Broderie purse style. I found a fabric with many different teapots or services, that were about the right size. I reinforced them with iron on and cut them out. Using cotton machine thread I blanket stitched them on.
 I then inserted the wound batting inner leaving some seams open to get it in.
 Using a contrasting thread from my left overs 
 I tacked / laced  firmly the last seams shut.

 I then proceeded to blanket stitch (with a double wind that stays firm )  the final seams - from the outside this time. ( undoing the tacking as I got to it )  

This is how it looks all sewn up.
 I then chain stitch over the seams 2 rows on either side and it covers the seam stitches.
 The rows of chain go in opposite directions. I will vary the colours used but stick to those appearing in the motifs. Just the straight forward easy part to do now - the rows of chain around each of the 12 pentagons.

A great variation on the theme. It turned out beautifully.

And very nice it is too. It would make a great pin cushion.

Love your felt ball. It's much too pretty to be used as a toy. I make a much simplified version from scraps for my grandkids to play with inside on rainy days. Thanks for your comment on my blog.
