What is a mom to do with broken balls?

I should not be complaining. After all, it has been over a year.

They have been used as funky bowling balls down the hallway.

They have been dropped on floor, fought over, and overworked.

Alas, my cool blue dryer balls are all pooped out.

Actually, one of them cracked in half like a ripe watermelon.

I wasted two weeks of my life pouting and scouring the stores for a new set (which of course I couldn’t find because I needed them). I finally found them in the checkout lane this past weekend. I guess it was just to easy to stock them in the laundry aisle with the dryer sheets. I was so excited that they were one of the first things opened while I put away groceries.

It’s a shame I didn’t see this post before my trip to Wal-Mart.

Goodmama,Inc has a great tutorial on how to make you own felted wool dryer balls! I have some scrap wool from my time attempting (giggle) to make knitted soakers for Bubbagirl’s cloth diapers…. yeah, not sure what I was thinking there! I figure making a basic ball can’t be but so hard so I’m going to give it a go this afternoon.

If all else fails I can check out The Bashful Sheep on Etsy where she has an adorably fabulous set of wool owl dryer balls!


I’m a firm believer that a good dose of baby fat can make any day brighter… let me indulge you!

    You should have seen the look on hubby’s face when I came in the living room and said..”Honey, my balls broke.. I gotta go to Walmart!”

    I am a grandma with no children living at home. I have no problem with my balls breaking because I can never remember where I have put them. Thanks for the laugh!!!
