I came up with this idea last year, but I've finally decided to make them. And they were much easier than I anticipated.
|With the help of a template from my friend, Martha, I cut out six pieces of soft, wooly fabric (use anything you'd like - felt, satin, cotton, fur, etc.)|
|Using a 1/4" seam allowance, I stitched one piece to the side of another, right sides together. I did this five times and left the last set unstitched.|
|Turn the ball right-side out. If you're using wool, fur, etc, use a needle to pull out any of the loose fabric that got caught in the seams.|
|Stuff, and handstitch closed.|
I also got the crocheting bug, so I made myself a hat, scarf, and fingerless glove set! :
All set for the fight!
