Soft Play

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending another one-year-old's birthday party.  Remember the butterfly quilt I made a year ago?  Same sweet little girl.  I was at a loss when figuring out what her gift would be, but was inspired when looking at old issues of Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine. 
I saw these cute little hand-sewn balls that I knew I had to make with some of my scraps from the Happy Home collection (which I sell in my new shop!).  It uses EPP, which is by far my favorite quilting discipline. 
Check out those lovely pregnancy nails!
I had never made a three dimensional object with EPP, so this was a fun new challenge.  The instructions were very straightforward, so making them was a cinch.  I wish I had some toddler-safe rattles to put inside, but I found myself running out of time to finish them, so they were gifted sans rattle.  I used some fun glitter floss to hand embroider her initial and a heart:


I would definitely make these again!  What do y'all think?  I've finally gotten some sewing done for #babyschep, so I'll update y'all on that soon!  Until next time, God Bless.
