I started making felt footballs for a Meals on Wheels Superbowl treat. So far I have made around 20 while watching the Australian Open tennis tournament. I need to make 30 more!
football shaped cookie cutter
white chalk pen
white embroidery thread
brown embroidery thread
thin white ribbon
Trace the football cookie cutter with the white chalk pen onto the brown felt. Each ornament requires two football shapes. Cut out all the football shapes that you need for your project.
Using the white embroidery thread - sew the football lines onto the front of the football.
Sew the front and back of the football together. Before sewing the ornament shut stuff the ornament with a few cotton balls and sew in a white ribbon loop.
But I think that using a blanket stitch looks a little more football-ish.
