As a child of the eighties, I longed for my own little one to know the joy of a softie that folds up into a ball. So I set out to recreate this childhood wonder and did it one better: These softies are hip and handmade. And just in time for a little Easter crafting, they fold up into their very own decorated eggs. The supplies are few and inexpensive, the instructions are thorough and full of pictures, and the pattern is digitally mastered. This pattern is licensed for personal use only. Please contact the designer if you are interested in selling ball buddies.
