Check this post out.  She completed those fabric balls.  Keep reading down the thread because she explains in more depth how she did it but she also said if anyone PM’d her she could provide more help.  Once you get it, this is probably a leval 1 craft but level 10 Wow factor. 🙂

I think colored chiffon would be lovely, but also a linen or cotton would work well. I would avoid a heavy fabric like flannel… once you go to the fabric store it’s also all about feel! 

I get a lot of extra fabric from secondhand stores like Salvation Army and Goodwill – this would be super cute/vintage with lace! And you can get a ton of that from thrift stores!

I’m using satin on mine that I starched and ironed first. I’m using a couple different size rounds to give variety, a 4″ styroform ball, and corsage pins. Once they’re pinned in, then I’m hot gluing each round near the pin to close them up more. Unfortunately, satin tends to fray and I haven’t figured a way around that yet. The less I touch them, the less they fray. Hopefully, no one will really notice anyway in the scheme of the whole ball. Wish I had a picture to post.

I haven’t gotten to the ribbon part yet. Probably just pin and glue. But more glue.

I don’t if I like mine anymore. The first one totally deflated in the last two weeks.

Here’s a deflated one:

Here’s the fresh one:

 

Sorry the pics are fuzzy, they’re from my cell phone.
