Does anyone know how they make these fleece balls?


I tried making one like a pom-pom, it got disassembled in 1.2 seconds.  The ones at the store (which I have shamelessly been scrutinizing without buying) are put together differently, but I can't figure out how.  I may have to break down and buy one just to disassemble it and learn how to make it.  I have tons of fleece leftovers and want to make something other than the braided tug.

Thanks! Smiley

this is a pattern for an entire scarf.  I would just make one pom pom.  The cool thing about it is that if it comes apart, there aren't a lot of string-like pieces.  The site doesn't seem to be up, so this is the archive.org cache of it.  It takes a while to load.

I suppose if you wanted multi-colored, you could stack two or three different color pieces of fleece and roll them up.

Thank you both!  heather1 - I tried that method first and my dog took it apart almost instantly.  jagged - thanks for the link, I was able to get it to come up.  I will have to give that one a try, looks more doggie-proof.

Were you ever able to make this?  My cats would love them, they love to bat balls around.

Not yet.  Smiley  I have a pile of fleece scraps for the dog, but haven't found the time.  It helps that my dog isn't a destroyer, he doesn't go through toys that quickly.

I saw the original link for the fleece ball.  Isn't it tied and sewn to make it stay?

When I'm not making crafts, I'm dreaming them up!

I've made the fleece ball by cutting out a stack of fleece circles.  I think I used 8-10 circles.  I placed them in a stack and used some heavy thread to tack them all together at the center.  Then I took a pair of scissors and cut fringe around each circle.  Finally the circles were fluffed up to get the fringe to fall in a more ball shape.  

Here's a pic of one I made...along with a bunch of other stuff from a Dog Swap.
