I've just made a ball for my grand daughter. It's made in twelve sections. These sewn together in groups of three and finally all joined to make a light, safe ball for 'tinies' to enjoy.
The only materials needed are:
- some fabric, in two contrasting colours
- a plate or similar circular template
- safe stuffing
- sewing kit
Cut each circle into quarters.
Then see the link to explain .......
