Anyone for tennis?

In tribute of Wimbledon I decided to bead a tennis racket. After Googling for a possible pattern and being unable to find what I had in mind. I turned to creating my own design in 3D right angle weave. I was quite happy my creation as it turned out pretty much how I expected.

Tennis Racket

I used size 11  metallic nebula blue toho seed beads for the frame and crystal frosted toho seed beads for the strings. It measures 35mm x 15mm I think it will make a good bag or key charm.

My husband made a couple of points about making the handle more realistic so I am in the middle of creating another tennis racket... version 2 which I hope to finish tonight and post a picture of the result very soon.

Now I just need a tennis ball, any ideas?
