Proven: balloons inadequate

I stuffed this 16 row asymmetrical trichrom with a balloon.  Inside the ballon stuffed with this tiny "yellow dhal". The dhal makes a great stuffing with a few small problems.  First it extrudes out of the crochet holes no matter how tight I crochet.  This is the reason for the balloon meant as a liner to hold them in.  But these projectiles are intended for slinging, and after only two throws the balloon ruptured.  I have experimented with balloons off and on but I am hereby official done.
