A few weeks ago, using this book, I made several little cloth balls for my grandies. Friends recently became first-time grandparents, so I had a good reason to make another ball. This one is the pattern "Snowball" and measures 4-3/4" in diameter.
I chose red and gold prints to represent the new mom's school colors - Iowa State University.
And then I selected purple and gold prints that represent the grandparents' school colors - University of Northern Iowa. Since that's my DH's alma mater too, I even had some UNI Panther fabric I could use.
So you can see how I covered all the bases to make a bright cloth ball. No partiality here!
