DIY Birth Ball Cover
These birth ball covers are a must if you’ve got a birth ball (also called exercise ball, yoga ball). This tutorial is super easy and gives your ball a beautiful new look and a handle to easily carry and store!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 yard knit fabric. Any knit will do! (if you have a 75cm ball, get an extra stretchy one)
- Paracord (or drawstring of some kind)
- Paracord clip (optional)
Step 1: Turn the 1 yard of knit fabric right sides together.
Step 2: Sew down both sides, right sides together to form a pouch.
Step 3: Fold over top and sew a small pocket for the drawstring around the top. (This will hold the paracord drawstring) Remember to leave a small opening to thread in the drawstring.
Step 4: Turn right side out, and find corners. Place corners on top of each other and pin.
Step 5: Sew around edges to create the handle. You can add an additional piece of fabric here and attach to these corners if you want an extra long handle.
Step 6: Thread the drawstring through the small pocket you sewed around the top. Attach the paracord clip (if desired).
Step 7: Put cover on ball and sinch up drawstring. Use the clip to close or simply tie drawstring.
TaDa!!!! So easy, and so practical.
