As my lovely assistant Sadie shows, here's all the stuff you'll need:
- Knee Socks
- Tennis Balls (or any kind of easy weight)
- Something to wrap the tennis balls/weight in the bottom to make them softer
Step 1: Make it soft!
Here's what you want to do:
- Make them heavy enough to be comfortable (a personal choice, but a tennis ball is a good beginner weight)
- Make them smooth -- you want the covering to be soft, and ideally not lumpy. The more balanced they are the better they'll look and the easier they'll be to spin.
For this set, Sadie flips the socks inside out, where, like a dangerous snake, they eat the tennis ball alive.
