Necessary materials

In order to make your own handsAn amazing ball in the technology of temari, you do not need any intricate devices. All the necessary materials, for sure, will be found in your home. And so, you will need:

  • The basis - this can be a special blank inA foam ball (they are sold in large quantities in handicraft shops and art shops, they cost a penny). You can also use a tennis ball, a small rubber ball or, at worst, you can make a base for the ball with your own hands from kapron tights.
  • Spool threads. By them we will wrap our base.
  • Threads for embroidery of patterns. Ideal suited thread floss or type "Iris".
  • Needle for embroidery, better with a blunt end, so as not to deform the very basis.
  • A strip of paper 1 cm wide and 30 cm long. It is not necessary to take white paper. A strip, carved from an old newspaper or magazine, will perfectly fit.
  • Pins with a hat or with colored heads.
  • Scissors.
  • For more complex patterns, you need a centimeter tape.
  • After all the necessary materials have been prepared, you can start working.

    We make the basis of Temari

    In order to make the basis for the futureDecorate we take a prepared ball and begin to wind it with a reel thread. At once we will say that the process is long and monotonous. But for the sake of future beauty can be tolerated. Wind the thread tight. So that the thread does not sag anywhere, otherwise the ideal shape will not work. Put coils in different directions. Thus, you will get such a mess. It will become the soil for embroidery of the pattern.

    Make markup

    From the accuracy and correctness of this stageDepends on the implementation of the embroidery of the ball. The marking of the embroidered globular ball is done according to the globe principle. That is, any ball should have a north and a south pole, as well as an equator. Have enough patience, and do not despair if you have to redo the markup several times. In the future, you, so to speak, put your hand, and it will be easier to perform this process. Perhaps, for you it would be advisable to view the video and photo lessons on the topic. For our trial balloon we will do a simple markup on 4 with the equator. This is the most primitive option, but it lies at the basis of any other, even the most complex markup. And so, proceed to marking our ball:

  • Take a blank strip of paper and attachOne its end to the ball. Fix the strip on the ball, piercing it with a pin. Puncture should be 0.5 cm from the edge. In this place there will be a north pole;
  • Wrap the ball with a strip, and in the place where it meets the "north" pin, we make a bend on it;

  • Next, we need to determine whereTo be the south pole and the equator. In order to determine the location of the south pole, take a piece of paper with which we wrapped the ball and bend it in half. Accordingly, to determine the equator, the resulting segment is bent two more times in half;
  • It is necessary to make small incisions in the place of bends;
  • Now we again wrap the strip around the ball, and the pin to the south pole;
  • Carefully remove the strip of paper from the north pole and wrap it around the equator. In places of incisions we also insert pins. Well, if the poles and the equator are marked with different colors of pins;
  • After this, you need to make sure of the correctnessArrangement of pins on the equator line. To do this, again, put a strip of paper through the same hole on the north pole. If the placed pins do not fall exactly into the incision angle, you need to rearrange them;
  • Now proceed to marking with a thread. Take the thread of the mulina (or iris) contrasting with the base color. This thread must be tightened between all the pins, fixing it on each of them.
  • This completes the process of marking the ball, and you canProceed directly to the embroidery process. For the first time, it's better to choose some simple pattern. You can start with the pattern "Square". This is a simple technique that results in a very beautiful product. For other, more complex patterns, the markup will be slightly different. But the beginning is always the same. Variants for markup can be found in the detailed master classes that are presented on our website. Enjoy the wonderful video lessons about this.

    We embroider a pattern

    After the marking of our theme is over,You can start embroidering squares. As already mentioned, this master class is dedicated to the pattern "Squares" Our squares will be two-colored. Rows of different colors should alternate. To begin with, we note that during the operation the needle needs to be inserted under the winding of the substrate, and not just under the marking thread. First, make a large knot at the end of the thread, so that its tip does not jump out of tension.

  • We introduce the needle very close to the intersection of the linesMarkup and make a small stitch. We do the same at each corner of the markup. Embroider stitches need clockwise. All work can be represented in the form of a scheme. Red indicates the intersection of the markings, and blue indicates the progress of the stitches;
  • By making stitches one after another in a circle, we will see that it gradually increases. In order for the pattern not to be illuminated it is necessary to insert the needle very close to the beginning of the previous stitch;
  • When the side of the square is 1 cm, we changeThe color of the thread and make another 6 -7 rows. In order to start embroidering with a thread of a different color, first fix the previous thread. At the end of the thread, again make a knot and continue to embroider. When changing the thread, it is necessary to make sure that the series is passed to the end;

  • We make one row of stitches with a thread of the first color;
  • Again 6 -7 rows of another thread and so on, untilThe vertex of the square will not be in the middle of the line of marking. The colors of the filaments are given as an example. You can make squares in two or more colors, at your discretion;
  • In the same way, you need to embroider squares on each of the intersection points of the markup threads. As a result, all the squares will touch the corners;
  • Free space can be decorated as you please. It can be embroidered in one color, but you can leave it untouched. On it, you can also embroider additional patterns.
  • The technique of "Square" is the main one. It starts with more than one master class, video and photo lesson. In general, there are more than 100 ways to decorate Japanese temari balls. For them also there are descriptions and lessons on the Internet, and if you want you can understand this ancient
