This little fabric jingle ball cat and baby toy is the perfect size for little hands AND little paws. Receycled sweaters, a few jingle bells and a little stuffing is all you need. However, if you want to make the CAT really happy, you can add a little catnip while stuffing. The cats go crazy.
I posted earlier this summer on how to make the larger sized balls. This is the same process, however the pieces are just smaller. You can download the pattern for all sizes FREE HERE.
Here is a little quick video on the process of making the fabric jingle ball. For full written instructions, check out the post here.
What you need
- 8 small pieces of sweaters (You can use felted wool sweaters, cotton, fleece, and even regular knit fabric.
- 1/4 cup Catnip herb (optional)

If you want to bring a smile to your kitty cat, dog or baby, there is still time to whip up a little fabric jingle ball for Christmas.
Have fun sewing!
