Ok, so here's the skinny: I'm in a swap for "crafty Momma's" where I have to put together a little package of home-crafted goodies for another person's child. My partner has a 1 year old little girl. After researching some age appropriate toys I came across a pattern for a cloth ball that I thought would be fairly simple and fun for a little one.

Apparently, I have over-estimated my sewing abilities. LOL For some reason as I'm trying to stuff this ball, it's beginning to look worse and worse. First of all,.... it isn't very round... it resembles more of a pin-cushion type of shape. Aside from that the stitching around the top and bottom of the ball is starting to pull out. So the stitching, I can fix... but why is my ball... well.. NOT? Why is it flat?

Has anyone made any of these?

LOL, I keep thinking if I just keep stuffing it, it will round out, but I think I'm going to have to start over.

I don't think it is you, I think it is your pattern. I would use a knit that is a bit more forgiving or I usually use a pattern that has 8 sections instead of the 6.

Thanks! I had found a pattern online that worked out much better after this one so I do think the pattern had something to do with it.
