This is a gift my mum and I put together for my sister in laws baby. We got the idea from the February 2011 issue of "Woman's World" on page 39 entitled "Bursting With Baby Gifts. In there example they used a big Styrofoam ball wrapped in a baby blanket. We couldn't find a Styrofoam ball that was big enough so we decided to go in a different direction and make a "Balloon" by wrapping crochet cotton around a balloon with watered down glue. I remembered the technique from when I was little and we made a really cute caterpillar out of a whole bunch of small balls.
