Snowball Fight!

A couple weeks ago, I repinned this snowball fight in a bucket thinking it would be a fun gift for my nieces who live in Arizona. What I thought was a pattern was actually a link to a store and the snowballs were sold out. Oh well...I decided to make my own pattern instead.

I didn't bother adding faces because real snowballs don't have faces, and I wanted to be able to put these together quick so I could ship them off in time for Christmas. For just a few dollars and about 90 minutes of work, my nieces will be getting a present that's sure to keep their dad and uncles busy. 

Oh and if the indoor snowball fight gets a little out of control, take it outside! Unlike real snowballs, these ones are machine washable...and they won't melt in the sun.

Download the pattern for the snowballs and my easy gift bag here. If you have a little more time, try making one of these cool storage bags instead.


  1. Thanks so much for the pattern. Same problem here, everyone was sold out as early as Thanksgiving.

  2. Thanks so much - I loved the pattern and idea so much I made a few and am blogging about it! I linked to your site for the pattern!

  3. Thanks so much for the pattern I was lucky to get a hold of the other ones but can't wait to make more so we can have more people involved had a snowball fight inside on Christmas I think the adults had more fun then the kids. Thanks again.

  4. Thanks so much for publishing the pattern. It's so nice to find someone willing to share for free!

  5. This is awesome!! Thanks so much for sharing the pattern!

  6. Can you please tell me how many snowballs the pattern makes? I wanted to make a lot for several different families. Thank you for such a fun idea!

    1. I think I made 8 with some fabric leftover.

  7. Thanks for the pattern! I need to make bean bag snowballs for a winter festival. This will work great! Off to the craft store! :)

  8. Thanks so much for the pattern and the instructions. I plan on making these for my grandchildren this Christmas!
