I had a play with scraps of cotton fibres around a polystyrene ball and ivory powertex.
I wanted to try and create something that wasn't solid.
I used a hairdryer to help to harden the fabrics quicker.
Then it dawned on me, how was I going to get the ball out of the middle as it was solid!!
So I quickly peeled it off and placed it in the airing cupboard for a day or two to dry solid.
And this is it stood on its edge.
And this is from the top with it stood on its edge.
And this is a little powertex man sat on top reading a little book.
And this is the little man sat inside the ball.
And from another angle.
And from the top.
And from the top and the side. Can you see how the mesh has formed around the edge.
And finally through the little gap at the back.
