The elegant and easy Japanese craft of kimekomi—making fabric handballs—is presented in this collection of 15 bright and colorful designs. Featuring full-size cutting templates, each design is accompanied by color step-by-step drawings, sensational photos, and easy-to-follow text. Although each project requires additional materials—such as a Styrofoam ball, a variety of colored fabric scraps, glue, and pretty ribbons or cords for embellishment—the fun, simple process assures that the first ball will be complete in just a couple of hours. Once the basics have been covered, a special section on creating and customizing new designs will allow crafters to branch out on their own to create ornaments and gifts for all occasions.
