Cool idea for use of all those beautiful remnants left behind from your bigger projects. Could see you taking it to the next level with a loose fabric belt done in the same fashion. Thanks!

I wrapped the wire tightly around it as soon as I had rolled the ball, that way it kept the shape.

Thank you for the tut.
I can't make the ball round. it comes out like a cylinder. hOw do you make it that round? It seems too delicate! and not just making it rolls in any way
Do you stitch it in place after you are finished with rolling?
