Homemade Balls for the Cousins
I seem to have developed a pattern of making just one gift for someone every Christmas. This year, it was Phoebe and her little first cousin Drew. A first first cousin! I am now an aunt! There is great joy and noise in our extended family with two babies, let me tell you.
I followed this easy pattern. I used cut up batting scraps as the stuffing, and I put a little jingle bell in the middle to give it a rattle. Both babies enjoy their simple balls more than I expected, although Phoebe's ball has the aggravating characteristic of rolling away where she can't follow. Must learn to crawl, Fee!
