Temari balls are an ancient Japanese embroidered artform. This is a traditional Japanese temari design. Most of the thousands of designs are only available in Japanese text, which makes it hard for those of us whose Japanese is less than fluent! My tutorials are written in English and have precise illustrations and every step clearly explained, so even the newest temari stitcher can become proficient and stitch beautiful Temari balls in no time. This design is intended for total beginners and is very simple to stitch. If you ever have any trouble stitching your Temari, you can always email for help and we'll work out your problem together. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Thread a needle!!
