Soft Hexie Ball

 When I saw this tutorial, I knew my nieces and nephew needed some! It was such a fun and easy project. I think the part that took the longest was choosing which cute fabrics to use!
 I love english paper piecing, so when I saw this tutorial from While She Naps I knew I had to give it a try! The ball goes together very nicely, I followed the directions pretty closely. The only thing I changed was instead of using a rattle, I just picked up giant jingle bells from the craft store. It gives it the cutest little jingle noise!
This first one was for my nephew and he loves it! I made sure to stuff it soft so there was enough give so he could grab it.
Can't wait to make more for my nieces!


  1. Such a cute idea! And a great way to use fabric scraps. : )

  2. Heck, I'm making one for my cat! LOL!

  3. I REALLLLY like this -- new great-grandson is expected in about 15-weeks. This will be a way to use some scraps, too. I believe I will make some for our dogs and cats. I plan on making crafts, proceeds to help the humane society, I am adding these to our list to make. I would love to see you get a facebook page and on Pinterest...others would enjoy you there. Thank-you for this post...and so many others that I am sure to visit.
