covering a sphere with paper/fabric is not as easy as it looks or sounds. after making 5 balls (as in ... 1 football, 1 soccer ball, 1 golf ball (which i threw out because it looked awful), 1 cricket ball)... i realize why they have such complex patterns on them - it's a NECESSITY.

You sis, are hilarious, you honestly did not know this prior to attempting to cover a sphere with material? Did you go in thinking you could do it with one sheet of material and be done in five minutes?? Cheesy


I have wrapped many an odd shaped gift in my time, so I know just how difficult a non square object is to cover with paper or material!

So actually... we were invited to a costume party - and my husband didn't want to wear a costume - so I came up with this "brilliant" idea to make paper mache hats representing different sports for all 4 of us. But of course, I had to go overboard and instead of just buying tubes of paint, I bought felt and leather to decorate the hats with. Took me 4 days to make.

To make things REALLY funny.. we get to the party and NO ONE except me, my kids, and the host (husband, not wife - who was an FBI agent), were dressed up. My husband ditched his tennis ball as soon as he realized no one was wearing a real costume.

My daughter was sooo happy though... so I sucked it up, and put my hat on with her.

Asalaamu Alaikum bro

...we were invited to a costume party…

So if I understand this right, the hosts issue an invite to come in costume but don't dress up themselves? [An FBI agent is not a costume, it's just a black suit!]

Isn't that like inviting someone over for a dinner party and then serving finger food and snacks? bro

Or have I just been to too many disappointing wedding receptions in my time? Wink

Say: "O ye my servants who believe! Fear your Lord, good is (the reward) for those who do good in this world. Spacious is God's earth! those who patiently persevere will truly receive a reward without measure!" [39:10]

Salam alaikum

good for you, making those hats!! do post some pics!

and thanks to Br Khalid, I now get the FBI thing: I thought the husband was an FBI agent (in real life), and he dressed up anyways (good for him), or perhaps the wife was the FBI agent (in real life) and she wouldnt dress up, you know, all Mulder and Scully...or more uptight Scully!! hehehe
