I was at Joann's the other day and saw this adorable dinosaur print remnant for $.75. I couldn't resist, but it was very boyish. So when a friend with a little nine month old boy offered to take me and little miss to the airport (instead of us having to get there by several forms of public transportation), I found a use! Since football season had just started and the last time I saw her little boy he was in a football jersey, a football just made sense.
I started looking around for ideas of how to go about this football plan. I found this article over at Make and Takes and used it for my inspiration.
Here's how it turned out:
I used some random green ribbion left over from another project to make the threads. I stuffed the football with plastic shopping bags (we have a lot and I didn't want to have to go out to get polyfill). I also made a pouch out of scrap fabric to hold a couple of jingle bells and stuffed that inside.
Over, I'm happy with how it turned out. I can't wait to find the right "girly" fabric to make my little miss one!
