I made three different balls as shown, and all of them were made with materials on hand. The green ball is made with felt as the covering, and is stuffed with an old cut up t-shirt. The black ball is covered with old tshirt material itself, and the same goes for the white ball. Tshirt material is semi stretchable, so makes for a good material to use. It can stretch enough to smooth out any wrinkles, and is readily available. Various needles, threads, scissors, needle threader, pins, etc are used, all common items in most households.
