When it had been raining for several days and her kids were stuck inside with energy to spare, Nancy who blogs at Nancy’s Couture, needed to come up with something to keep them entertained. She had seen a pattern for making fabric balls on another site and using recycled jeans she created these fun balls for her children. They were a huge hit!
You’ll only need a couple of items to make these play balls. Nancy’s tutorial is great with lots of photos showing each step. Sewing a round object like a ball looks kind of complicated, doesn’t it? I was so surprised when viewing Nancy’s tutorial that it’s really pretty basic sewing, nothing overly complicated. If you can sew a straight line, you can make these fun denim balls.
