I made these balls following this pattern (via Floral Showers). When I made the first one my daughter helped me stuff it. For some strange reason she loves to stuff things I make. :-) And she gave me an idea! She remembered when I made the ribbon ball (which she also helped me stuff) and that the kit came with a bell. I did not use the bell for the ribbon ball and she asked me whether I would be using the bell for this ball. Well ... I had not thought of that but why not? And that started it all.
I did not use the bell for the first ball. But I made a second one and used the ball for that one. And I made a third one and added crinkly chocolate wrappers inside. Good reason to eat those expensive chocolates that come individually wrapped! ;-) So now baby boy has three balls - one silent one, one with a jingling bell and one that crinkles when crushed together. He does not play too much with them yet. It is still a bit hard for him to grab them. But I guess they will be a hit when he gets a bit older. So for once I have something ready IN TIME! :-)
