Monica, i got my hemi’s today and have watched your video…. I’m still new at this and am not sure how to section the hemi! I watched the parasol video too, but since that is a ball & this is only half a ball I’m lost! Can you help? Thanks!
Hi Barbara! Dividing a hemi is very similar to dividing a ball, but since a hemi is basically just a ball cut in half, you should measure around the BASE of the hemi (versus measuring around the middle of a ball). So the same marks you would normally make around the equator line of a ball should be made around the bottom part of the hemi — where the band or ribbon will be wrapped around later. Does this help?
Thanks! That is what i thought but just wanted to be sure!
These are beautiful, Have you done a video for making the Unicorn?
Hi Perry. 🙂 My apologies for missing this question until now. Yes, the unicorn video is a bonus with the Iris pattern.
How do you fix it so you can hang it? Do you run a wire completely through it before adding the dowel or straw? I just made one and the top where the material comes together isn’t stable enough to support it’s weight 🤔
Never mind. I figured something out. Thank you for sharing your talent!
Do you put padding on the foam disc?

Having read this I thought it was very informative.
