This is for calla. She ask for help on making these. I pray that this helps.
Pick three colors. cut these into 2.5 inch squares
press each square in half
Then in half again to find center
open up square and place pin in the middle and close again only in half once
Take 2 squares wrong sides together. (this is your middle color. Center on the ball and pin at the four corners.
using same color. press square in half and instructed previously.
open and place pin in the middle. close square
Pin this to the middle of you square on the ball
fold top corner down to bottom and pin
fold other corner down to bottom and pin. Now pin the other side corners down. You will have 4 pins across the bottom. Do this three more times rotating ball 90 degs. each time.
you will end up with 4 triangles on this piece.
Now place two more squares on the opposite side of the ball. Be sure to measure to keep the distance even or your design will be uneven. Pin this down at the four corners as well. You repeat for this side what you have just finished for the other side.
Using measuring tape measure from the point down 3/4 inch.
insert second color
proceed as you did for the first color. You are only adding 4 squares at a time. You will be adding to the middle of the previous square.
This is how it looks after adding second color. No flip ball over and repeat this step for the other side.
Now measure 3/4 in. from the point between the these triangles and pin the same color.
This is what it looks like.
Flip ball over and repeat for other side. Second layer done.
Now for the third and final layer. Remember to work form the inside triangles out. repeat in same manner as previous row.
Now for the embellishments
I use a hot glue gun to hold down the rick rack. You can use rick rack or ribbon here. That is your choice. I just put pins in to hold the lace.
All finished. Just let your imagination flow and have fun with these. The direction originally said to measure 1/2 in from center for the placement of the triangles. I did not like this because the middle color did not show well. I also did not have to add an extra row if I measure 3/4 in. Do not be surprised if you use a lot of pins. I think there are about 250 pins in one ball more or less.
