Felt Beach Ball Toys

31 Jul

ballsWe’re closing out our July Seaside theme with these great little felt beach balls. Super soft and indoor safe these DIY felt toys stitch together easily. The addition of a jingle ball makes this toy at least 9000x more charming.

You will need:

7.5″ x 7″ Felt in White*

2.5″ x 7″ scrap of 3 other colors, I used Aqua, Hot Pink, and Sunshine

Stuffing

Jingle bell noisemaker (Optional)

*matching thread

Cut 3 ball pieces from ball template (below) in white and one each of the remaining color. Cut 2 dot pieces for the center from color of your choice.  Lay a white piece and a color piece together and overcast stitch around one of the edges. You will be turning this inside out so keep the knot on top. Set aside and repeat with remaining pieces sewing white to color.

Lay the felt pieces together with outsides facing in and stitch the colored sides to white sides.  Leave the end pieces a little open on one side to turn it right side out. Turn right side out and stuff, add noisemaker to your toy if desired. Since this is a soft ball it will hold it’s shape better if it is well stuffed.

Sew center closed and cap stitch the beach ball accent to the center. Roll the ball in your hands to distribute the stuffing more evenly to get the ball shaped correctly.
