Waste Not Want Not Wednesday: Cotton Baby Ball
I made this ball on a small round wood loom with two strands of Sugar 'n Cream yarn that had been in my stash for a few years. The ball is filled with waste from my stuffing bag such as serger trimmings. Since the tiny bits would slip out of the open loom knit stitching I loaded it up into the foot of a no longer wearable pair of tights. The end was tied off and I put a few stitches in the knot to be extra sure it won't open when some little sweetie chews on it. It is fully washable and I'm proud to say it kept scraps and a bit of microfiber tights out of the waste stream.
