Felted Play Balls

100_1062
I have had a pattern for a crocheted felted wool ball for a long time.  I am going to a baby shower tomorrow for three ladies, so I thought this would be a good time to try this pattern out.

These guys are really soft and fuzzy and I hope the new moms will like them!  I got even more creative with the yellow one to make polka dots with the blue wool yarn.  It turned out OK, but not as good as I had envisioned!  Hmmm, kinda sounds like life in general, huh?

I bought the pattern (along with several others) from KnotSewCute on etsy.  You can buy this pattern here.  If you buy five patterns you get a sixth one free.  Her patterns are inexpensive too…this one was only $2.99! 
I am linking to these great parties!

Really cute!! I don't crochet, but this pattern looks really fun. I just finished a "Roving Rock" project along the same lines, but without thread...just wool roving. :-)
