Pattern Details

When my kids were babies, I made up some of the pentagon balls using my Grandmother's stash of polyester scraps. It worked out fabulous!! If you can imagine all the bright colors and funky patterns. It made a really cute ball. I put some jingle bells inside to make them jingle when the kids played with them. So I got thinking about my felted sweaters and thought they would sew up nicely into a ball. Sure enough, it worked out great. I don't have any little ones around my house anymore, but my border collie loves them, and I am sure cats would get a kick out them too. This is a simple fun project for even the beginner seamstress. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic hand sewing skils basic sewing machine skills SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS finished balls range from 2 1/2 inches to 7 inches in diameter three sizes of blocks are available

I have enjoyed creating all my life. I love making things with different textures and colors. My favorite is to recycle an item into something unique and most importantly, useful.
