    Thought I would share the ball I just finished for our pastor's grandson.
    I put a rattle in it. I put two water bottle caps together and put a couple small buttons inside and then taped them with masking tape.

    Where did you get the pattern for this. My BF's daughter just had twins and I'd love to make some for them.

    I found this for a ball. Not exact same, has where baby can grab it. I am still looking for one like above. I like both! Check the other on out. :-)

    That site looks more like it! Just hard to read the pattern even when you click on it to inlarge. I am going to copy and check it out. Thanks for the lead.

    Go to the right to Free Grand Patterns, and click on the ball.

    Barb, I LOVE your scrappy, quilted ball! I have been trying all over to get a pattern for it! Would you care to share it?? Is that on a foam ball base & 'tucked' in? I made Christmas tree ornaments like that but this looks different? I would really appreciate it if you could/would help me out!? Thanks, Sewin' Sam

    I'm planning to make some of the grab balls to match some quilts I'm making. Thought that would make a cute combination with matching fabric.

    I made some matching balls to several of the baby quilts for my great grandkids. I am going to try putting squeakers inside future ones. Just ordered some on the internet. The rattles are fun but thought squeakers would be fun too.

    squeakers sounds like fun. Can you share the site that you ordered them off of?

    I am not so sure how these squeakers will work in the balls but plan to make some chew toys for dogs and will try at the same time in some balls for either dogs or kids. the web site is sitstay.com. I think they will work in the smaller balls the kids.
