    I have been eyeing this pattern (or at least very similar to this one) in the Burda April 10 magazine (the first one I bought). Now the stress of the holidays is over, I think it’s time. Thanks for the inspiration. It looks great!

    deekho, if I make another one of these balls I will put a tinkle bell inside!

    nenasew, this is my second project completed from this book. The instructions are very well written and the photos are gorgeous.

    I really love this! It brings back memories of my late grandma who made a similar patchwork ball with a tinkle bell in it for me when I was a kid!
