Tuula Pöyhönen - Global Hassock

I liked this colorful fabric ball since I firs time saw it in the Surrur book. 
I was writhing about this amazing publication already some time ego here:
It is designed by Tuula Pöyhönen from Finland.
I decide it can be a perfect gift for Christmas for my younger son. 

Global Hassok is a sort of Rubik's Cube - which you can do in any size you want and with mix of any fabric you have. I've picked just some leftover fabric from my closet, (12 pieces leaves and 12 half circles ) and I used one IKEA pillow 40x40  for filling it. It was so much fun to make! My sons love to play with the small triangles - we made a big fight last evening  and at night I've connected all the pieces together and hide the big ball till the Christmas eve. When Franek saw it in the book - he wanted another one for himself - black& white one! so I have to keep working ;-)

Its fantastic toy !
Easy to grab for a small hands - colorful - inspiring - just beautiful - thank you Tuula Pöyhönen ! ;-)


  1. Great the post with the recycled trees.

    Cards wrapped on there way tomorrow!

  2. Tracey - I can't wait to see it!

  3. Who can help
    I made all the triangels and put them together to 3 x 4-packs... but how do I put them together to a ball? Pia from Germany
    P.S. I never liked Rubiks cube :)

  4. The best is to connect the triangles one by one in the middle of the ball.
    Than 4 corners together outside (6 times).
    Good luck. Agata

  5. I did it!
    It is soo nice. The size is like on the pattern - and now I'll start a very big one.
    Thank you.

  6. Just found your blog! Bought the book aswell and started my global hassock today :) Making a smaller one and then really want to make a larger ottoman sized one!
