Fobble Bobbles

How cool are Wool Felt Balls?

They look like fuzzy bubble gum

or colourful 3D polka dots

They're a pleasure to sew, the needle just glides through the felty goodness.

And are easily attached with glue.

Their colourful bubbly appearance is just asking for cute photos

Happy bobbly flowers

A rainbow spiral

A forest...
...where a sweet smiling bear lives. 

Oh yes!! Wool Felt Balls are so cool!!

but I think they should have a more exciting name than Wool Felt Balls. 

What do think of Fobble Bobbles? 
or
Felt Bubbles, Wool Pebbles, Sewing Spheres, Woolly Balls, Febbles, FeltBees, WFB's ?

It's funny the things I think about when I'm sewing. :)

  4. The cupie doll nestled in bubbles of colour remind me of Bib and Bub. Your imagination is a delight. I have a big smile on my face.

  8. Tehe ... you know I can't pick them up, they make my fingers feel weird (nails down a chalkboard weird) so 'wobbly bobbles' describes how my knees go :)

  13. LOL, how's the quilting going? Isn't it a challenge to come up with blog posts when your current project looks pretty much the same for months on end? I know I have that problem, but you are doing a great job here! These photos really are cute and fun. :D

  14. Hi Monica,
    That's not the case at all. Sometimes I find my inspiration elsewhere other than my current project and like to share it. I enjoy styling and taking photos as much as sewing.

    You so such a good job taking beautiful pictures of everyday objects!

  17. They are clearly Wooly Bullies! That way, every time you think of them you can bust out in song!

    Sing it with me!

    Uno, Dos, One, Two, Tres, Quatro.. Matty told Hatty about a thing she saw. Had two big horns and a wooly jaw. Wooly bully, wooly bully, wooly bully!

    hahahaha. It may be late and I may be tired.

    Love your pictures - well done and creative!

  19. I too find these balls mesmerising. I love seeing them strung in garlands. Felt ball making was my kinder activity I ran last year. The results were more on the sculptural side than ball side! A couple of days ago, my 4 year old and I were in a shop that had a felt ball rug on the floor. My girl immediately lay down on the rug and started rolling and touching, 'feel how good it is mum'. I did not roll but I do agree, they feel so good.

  24. I too think about odd things when I sew....or sometimes I don't think...which can be a good thing.
