Back in January, I taught my first temari class. It was a beginner’s class and ended up being split into two sessions, (because I completely misjudged how much we would get done in the first class,) but in the end, they learned 4 patterns: wrapped bands (S4), spindles (S4), a triwing (S6), and then the bonus pattern for the second session, all-over squares (S4 as a C4). Since I already had an example of the all-over squares to show them, I didn’t make a new one (because I already talked about how much I enjoyed that pattern the first time,) but I did make example balls of all the other ones so I could stitch along with them in class. For me, this was more of an opportunity to play with the colors. The “secret” fun thing I did with this set was make the spindles ball and triwing ball reversible.
I was pretty pleased with how this gives the set of temari all together two different looks. It was nice to do some really easy designs and just concentrate on playing with the color palette.
