Puzzle patchwork ball - what do you like

 Some days I tried to discover a tutorial to make such ball and finally did it.

Thank you, Kathy!

I started cutting and sewing and after about 2 hours I have these beautiful colorful elements.

Then began more interesting part of making the ball - to collect all the pieces.
One hour later I had this.
Playing with the ball I discover that every three elements can turn outside and the ball looks like pyramid. I added buttons and the ball turns into real puzzle. The buttons are hidden in usual look and when turn over you can see them.

 This is a gift for a blind girl, that likes playing with something in her hand!
