My kids have been practicing throwing and catching a lot lately, but the rubber balls we have are a little difficult for them to catch. So last night when I cleaning out my closet, I found some old jeans, and thought I’d make a ball with some of the fabric. It was really easy to make – very similar to my yo-yo ball from awhile back. This time, I cut the panels a bit too wide though, so the “ball” turned out kind of square. The kids are still having a great time playing catch with it though. And it could even be a toy for the new baby. Read on, to see more details on how to make one, if you’d like!
The square shape of the ball got me thinking. If I were to make the fabric panels even wider, it might make a nice pillow for the couch, and if the panels were really narrow, it could make a football shape! I’m going to have to experiment some more. Anyway, here’s how to make one!
