Fabric Balls from Jennie Rayment
Christmas Ideas • Educational, G, 11-Jul-2019
Use your scraps
Jennie’s balls can be made into a quick and easy toy or decoration. Both are a great way to use up your scraps to produce this simple, safe fabric ball.
If you have a wavy cutter blade or pinking shears, you could also use them to give the edge of the fabric a little more interest.
Might other possibilities be to make the balls and leave them as a garland?
This is a comment from one of our viewers:
I’ve spent a wet and windy couple of hours snug in my sewing room (I love that expression “my sewing room”!), making one of Jennie’s scrap balls for my granddaughter. She’s a 19-month-old spark that lights up our lives. Thanks, Jennie, keep the ideas coming, please!!
Happy Christmas to all.
