Thank you! I know I should be able to create this without a pattern, but I seem incapable. You've saved me a lot of time :o)

Hi Tanya,
What a cute idea! Thanks so much for the pattern...I have a little nephew who would love one of those balls!!
Kathy :)


Cute balls! And I love a pattern--keeps my brain from getting too tired and makes it more likely I'll actually get a project finished. Thanks!

Tanya Whelan

Thanks so much girls. Wasn't sure if such a simple pattern would be silly to put up but I know I like when the pattern part is already done for me so I can think about the design more. So glad you like it. I'll probably be posting more patterns this week as now I'm procrastinating from shopping which I hate this time of year.


i love these..another great idea! thanks you for sharing!

Great shots, cute project!

I just love your style it's so refreshing like a fresh glass of Sweet Tea on a Southern May Morning. Thanks for sharing!
Happy Holidays!


Thank you so much! I'm going to make up a smaller one as an ornament for our Christmas tree! I'll post photos on Flickr when I've finished.


Those Fabric Balls are really cute and so colorful. I think I will make some for gifts. So sweet! Thank you for making it a free pattern!


Those balls are just too cute! Love the flickr group and thanks for the pattern.


Oh I'm so excited! I was looking for a pattern for those sometime back!! Wanted to make my baby boy some fun balls...he's a boy, you know they LOVE balls and wheels/tires. Its so funny! Thanks again...enjoy that "time on your hands."

Thanks so much for the tutorial. I've been seeing these balls everywhere and now I can make my own!


I love your use of color and fabric!


These are awesome. I will be making some and perhaps adding a little jingle bell inside!


those are super duper cute! thanks for the pattern.


These are adorable! I will definitely try this and let you know how they turn out.

Hmmm, I've actually been trying to learn to juggle. How crazy is that-lol? These might work perfectly.

Happy holidays!


OH wow!! The are so fun!! Special Love the Red and White one. Wonder why :))

Enjoy rest of your evening!


What adorable little balls--the colors and fabric prints look so cute together. Thank you for sharing the pattern.


Thank you so much for the pattern! My 15 month old twin grandsons love to play ball, but with two other brothers, they often fight over them. I'm going to make a bunch of them, just for the babies!


I love this idea! I think I'll make one with a bell inside for my 9 mo old nephew. What fun!


This is great! I have been debating on balls or blocks for my little on. Now I am going to use your free pattern... HOORAY! Thanks!
