Baby Bopple Ball
My baby bopple ball has been made with love for my wee grand daughter. I
saw this in my local quilting shop and just couldn't resist the urge to
The pattern comes from Vanilla House Designs and is a lot of fun to make.
They have a brilliant method of getting stuffing into the handles! I must remember this for any future projects.
a straight forward pattern to follow (only 3 pattern pieces!!) but you
need to note that each pattern piece has a different seam allowance. I'm
not sure why this is other than having room to place all the pattern
pieces on the same page.
I followed their pattern initially but then made a couple of
modifications as the wee balls at the ends of the handles were not as
smooth as I'd like them to be.
- I found clipping at regular intervals around the wee circles at the end of the handles a great help.
- Toys that make noises are always fun so I added a wee rattling
device inside the main ball at time of stuffing. I also found several of
those squeaky devices that I sewed into the ends of three of the
handles. This was not an easy job as it required adding a bit of
stuffing as well (so all the handles were the same size) and then hand
stitching the opening that was on the curve.
- When attaching the handles I decided to attach mine at a different
point than in the pattern. In my photo above you'll notice that the base
of each handle gets wider where it attaches to the ball. This makes the
handles a little longer as well.
