Warmer weather is coming, and last week I made cutoff shorts from some holey jeans. A couple of springs ago, I made this ball, and I always wanted to try narrowing the panels to make a football shape. So yesterday I gave it a go and it worked! In addition to some regular stuffing, I also used some fabric strips cut from an old tee-shirt to give it some more weight.
The football throws very far, but its nice and soft to catch. Perfect for the kids! Maybe I’ll make some velcro waist flags and teach them how to play flag football this summer in the yard. Fun!
If you want to try making one, there are instructions below, as well as a template for the panels. Game on!
