Kimekomi is an ancient Japanese craft dating to the early 1700s. While some of the designs are reminiscent to the Temari designs, these decorative balls are made of fabric, batting, and cord rather than threads.

For me it is a way to satisfy my desire to quilt without delving into a whole other craft. Now I have something to do with the beautiful small pieces of fabric I pick up along the way.

Kimekomi is made by tucking fabric into grooves cut into a styrofoam ball and then trimmed out in satin cord, beads or other decorative trim.
