This is a simple and easy ball to make using two needles. The ball is mattress stitched together. The pattern is not for sale, however, you can make as many of these balls as your heart contends. Go ahead and sell the final result on Etsy or Ebay. But please send anyone who would like the pattern back here to get it. It is not fair to steal.
