    Pattern

Steps:

  1. Mark sections. Use pencil to mark off six equal sections, leaving a slight indentation. Note: Place three rubber bands around ball as a guide.
     
  2. Cut out fabric. Use pattern to cut out the following: Quilt batting: 6 pieces; Gray satin: 2 pieces; Green satin: 2 pieces; Green brocade fabric: 2 pieces.
     
  3. Attach fabric pieces. Glue a piece of batting to the center of each foam section. To attach fabric to foam, center one fabric piece over one section. Place the edge of the knife on the fabric over the indentation line. Push the fabric seam allowance straight into the foam surface. Note: For a clean edge, keep the knife at 90 degree angle to the foam. Gently smooth the fabric into the indentation along all edges with the tip of the knife. Tuck in the other fabric pieces, alternating fabrics. If excess fabric sticks out slightly, wait until you are finished and trim fabric close to foam with nail scissors.
     
  4. Decorate ball. Cut pearl beading in three 14” lengths to fit around foam ball over indentations. Glue two over indentations. Glue one between the other two. Glue gray ribbon over center of gray satin sections. Glue braid over the remaining indentations.
     
  5. Finish. For hanger, cut a 7" length of green ribbon. Form a loop and pin ends to top of ball. Tie 14" length of green ribbon in a bow and pin at the base of the hanger. Cut ribbon ends at a slant. Glue one satin rose in center of each gray section and one at top of ball.
