Crocheting 3-dimensional objects is really fun. I made this hacky sack for my niece for Christmas this past year. I used orange size 10 crochet thread and cut up strips of an old pair of sweat pants for the stuffing. I could’ve used dried beans, but then it would’ve been more possible to hit and hurt somebody with it. Since my niece was soon to get a baby sister, I knew hard objects to throw would probably not be a good idea. Also I didn’t really have any dried beans at the time and it was an impulsive craft project, so I used what I had (that’s the real reason, shh). And I know I shouldn’t be talking about Christmas right now, but I drafted this post before my baby was born 3 months ago and this is all I have time to post right now (as I sit here typing one-handed while nursing my baby).
