This little charm was mostly an "OMG! Here ya go, now quit bugging me about it!" project~lol.
My 15 yr. old is a bit obsessed, and even got me hooked on a certain hunting game! She has been asking for one of these balls for over a month now, so here is MY charming version! And it only takes about 5 minutes, and a few scraps of yarn.
It's fast, it's fun, and it's free, so follow me for the pattern~
