Having a Ball

Do you remember the felt balls I made? (see previous post) I have been having a play.
And this is what I made. A decoration for a keychain perhaps?
The hardest part was threading them on the string - a sturdy mattress needle does the trick.
I think next time, after making the hole, that I would embroider them first, before threading.

You could have fun making a whole necklace with embroidered felt balls......
Happy sewing,

What a great way to use your felt balls. I'd have never thought of that. The embroidery and beads make them very exotic.

Fantastic!!! It looks like one of those expensive fancy Xmas decorations to me, imagine doing a heap and hanging them on the tree, that would look fabulous!!!

Ok, I just have to tell you...when I first looked at your post and read about the key chain, I thought, wow, she must have a BIG purse. Now, you might ask why I was thinking this, well, I'll tell you. When I looked at the post I thought this was a doorknob that you had hung the balls from and I had imagined the balls being pretty big balls. It dawned on me as I read on that these balls are quite a bit smaller than I first thought! I just had to share this with you, I thought you would get a chuckle out of this. It's kind of hard to tell how big something is when you look at it in pictures and don't have anything next to it to compare the size. I do like what you have done with them and your embellishments look great. Hugs, Linda

It's nice hanging on the door handle. Window decorations are very popular here in Germany. I think they look very Christmasy. Oh, are they quite small then?
