Whipped up this baby ball today for a work colleague who is leaving today to have her first baby. Now I've got to be honest and say that it actually took me most of the day! Started at 10am and finished at 4pm with no breaks not even for lunch although that includes going through my stash and choosing just the right combination of fabrics to hand sewing the final seam. As you can see I chose mostly brightly coloured fabrics with 3 black and white prints.
The pattern is from Anna Maria Horner's book "Seams to me" and was pretty easy really, just a couple of corners needed re-doing. It's made up of 30 hexagons and 12 pentagons and is about the size of a real soccer ball although maybe a bit soft for a world cup game!
And because it' Friday I'm linking up with Amylouwho for Sew'n'tell friday this week. Just click on the link to check out everyone else's finishes for this week!
