152:365 I must be insane...

Anna: If you've seen some of my craft related photos, you've probably guessed that I enjoy trying different kinds of crafts. One of my favorites is temari. In this photo is my Mardi Gras inspired temari made using a 3 inch Styrofoam core. It's a very comfortable size to work in.

You see the little while balls at its base? Those are going to be temari, too.

I think I must be insane to try it.

It was actually painful to wrap them. The cores are half a facial tissue each. Holding something so tiny while trying to wrap it tightly with sewing thread was quite the challenge!

If they work, I think I'll make them into earrings. I haven't decided on colours yet, so they're just ready and waiting for now.
