Boys & Balls

It seems like things are always flying around this house.  I don’t know if it’s a boy thing but everything gets tossed.  In an effort to incorporate the kids into the surroundings I made these felted bouncy balls to sit in a wooden bowl on the coffee table.  They are decorative and functional, the perfect type of thing to have when little fingers are busy tossing everything in sight.  They are soft so they don’t hurt anyone or anything.  They are also machine washable, a perfect attribute when dealing with the hands & mouth of  a one year old.  I knit wool covers for bouncy balls, threw in the washer on hot and magically the wool covers felted in the wash.  I adapted a pattern from the “Itty-Bitty Toys” book by Susan B Anderson to fit the size bouncy ball I bought.
