More World Peace with Fabric Balls

A while ago I wrote about my theory that my fabric ball tutorial was quietly uniting families all around the world.

This week I received a delightful email from Nadja in Germany. She wrote:

Hello!

I'm Nadja from Leipzig, Germany.
Your tutorial is fantastic, all of my girlfriends want a baby right now, so I sew them a ball... ;-)


This darling photo accompanied her email. Love the mix-and-match fabrics throughout. I'm getting ready to make a new ball for grandson Hunter's 1st birthday, and I may borrow some of Nadja's style for my next project!

(I need need to point out that the bells sewn on the outside of the ball, although darling, do not meet US guidelines for safety with baby toys.)

Truly, that fabric ball tutorial is the gift that keeps on giving. Every day I receive multiple hits--from around the world--on that post.

It makes my grandma-heart happy happy happy to think of babies playing with soft, cuddly, bright-colored balls. Thanks, Nadja, for your email!

I made one for Elsie a couple years ago and often see it on the floor in the background when we Skype. It still gets played with!

Our kids still play with Beccas. They are wonderful balls.
