Stitch all 4 arrow head shapes for the north pole. Turn the ball so the south pole becomes the north pole. Locate the triangles with a pole around the obi. Mark with pins the same distance in from the edge to make the arrow head shape. See photo to right.
|Stitch the 4 arrow head shapes around the south pole, interlocking nejiri style as you go. Embellish the design as you please.|
