Beginning Temari Balls with Marilyn Romatka

Of all the Temari patterns out there, I feel this is the easiest. It teaches the basic stitch, goes together so intuitively, and looks spectacular once it’s done. Have a front-row seat in one of Marilyn’s most popular classes. Fair warning: you may love making these things so much you will find a new passion in thread. Enjoy!
