My first soccer ball is finished at last!
Patched and quilted (or rather top-stitched - there's no batting underneath) and stuffed with foam pillow-filling, I am quite happy with how it turned out.
I used the colours of the South African flag as my inspiration for this ball. The fabric is called Shwe-shwe and is traditional to South Africa. Read more about it here.
The next ball will hopefully not take so long to make and will be something completely different - watch this space...
