Starburst Temari

The second of my Christmas gift temari series - a flame color scheme on a charcoal base.

For this design, I got to practice a layered star and a woven star, one on each side.

The pattern is a slightly altered ‘Guardian Star’ from Suess’ Japanese Temari. I think my technique is getting smoother as I go!

Love this one with its bright colors and two different stars!

I had intended to make a bunch of Temari as Christmas gifts, but then only ended up making one for my MIL using the lavender kiku pattern I’d used before.

Your Temari balls are all so varied … and totally gorgeous!

Thank you everyone for your comments! I wasn’t expecting this one to get the most attention of the 5 balls - that’s part of the joy of sharing our work. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Thanks so much for the feature! It’s good to be back!

So completely gorgeous. You’ve inspired me to try it. The girl & I are making one each. So far so good but wow, tricky with the tension & thread placement. This is a meticulous craft!
