DIY Super Cool Squishy Stress Ball! How to Make The Coolest Stress Ball!
How to Make a Squishy Ball
A soft and squishy ball is both fun and useful. You can use it as a stress ball, or a toy for a child or a plaything for animals, especially cats and kittens. You can mold it, squish it and play with it!
Squishy Cloth Ball
Cut two equal pieces of cloth into a square shape.Using fabric marker, draw two circles or ovals on the fabric. Cut out the circles or ovals.
- You can vary the shape but it the shape is too complicated, you may not be able to turn the ball inside out later.
Stitch the ball together.Thread a needle with some cotton in a similar color to the cloth. Sew along the edge of the ball, leaving a small edge. Use small, close stitches to keep the filling inside.
Stop when you have stitched about 3/4 of the way around.Turn the cloth inside out.
Stuff the ball with cotton filling.Continue sewing together, making sure that the edges of the cloth are tucked inward while sewing, so they cannot be seen when you finish.
Finish by tying a knot or two close to the surface of the fabric.It needs to be strong enough to prevent the fabric from unraveling.
Decorate the squishy ball.You can add buttons, beads or other decorations but not too much. Or, just leave it plain.
Done.It can now be played with.
Squishy Sock Ball
Get one sock and cut it in half.Get the half without the heel of the sock, and stuff it with five or six socks.
Tie it with a small hair tie or rubber band.Tie the part with the opening. It must look like a small sack bag.
Decorate it.Gel pen is recommended as long as it isn't too liquid. Draw something on it, such as a face, your favourite animal, or anything else you would like. This step is optional.
Finished.The squishy ball is now ready for play.
QuestionCan I hot glue them shut?Top AnswererHot glue is just melted plastic. You can hot glue most things. It is hard when cool and does not lend itself to forming a thin glue layer. Over time the plastic gets brittle or contracts with cold weather and it will no longer hold together whatever you have glued.Thanks!
QuestionCan I put slime in the sock?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, but it would be very messy unless you put the slime inside of something else first.Thanks!
QuestionCan I use felt to make the squishy ball?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, you can. As said in Method 1, use cloth. So that means that you can also use felt as a substitute.Thanks!
QuestionCan I make a circle using Method 1?Top AnswererAs it says, you need 2 circles (the squares are cut into circles in the first step) because it is very difficult to gather the edges of a single circle to form a ball. Stretchy fabric is the most likely to form a ball shape after stuffing. Woven fabric needs to be gathered to create a ball shape.Thanks!
QuestionCould I make one with a balloon?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou could, but it is made differently: Fill a water bottle with flour. Then, blow up the balloon. Put the balloon on top of the water bottle, tip it upside down until the flour gets into the balloon, then tie the balloon shut.Thanks!
QuestionMethod 1 says, "Finish by tying a knot or two close to the surface of the fabric." Could I just sew it shut instead?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes you could, but it may open up over time. It may also be hard to squish without catching the stitches.Thanks!
QuestionCan I use memory foam?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, in fact memory foam works best. You can also use a sponge.Thanks!
QuestionCan I use a bag to make a squishy?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, but it may not work as well as other materials would.Thanks!
QuestionCan I make a donut shaped squishy with foam?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, you can. However, it may be a bit of a challenge so just be aware of that.Thanks!
Can I make a squishy ball using a memory foam pillow?
To make a squishy sock ball, start by getting a sock and cutting it in half. You should keep the half with the toe part of the sock. Then, stuff the sock with a few other old socks or fabric. Secure the open part of the sock with a small hair tie or rubber band to finish your ball, which should look like a small sack bag. You can also decorate your squishy ball with gel pens, if you want. You could draw on a face or any other design that you like.
- It is best to use light colored socks (yellow, orange, pink, green, etc).
- If the squishy is for pets, do not add any sequins or buttons as they could swallow them.
- If making Method 1 for a child under three, do not use small parts such as buttons, as these can be a choking hazard. Method 2 is not suitable for children under 3 due to the hair tie/rubber band.
