For all football lovers, and quilters with left over hexagons and pentagons – here are the templates and brief instructions on how to make a football. You can use the templates to create the football using English Paper Piecing (EPP), or for the large size, as sewing machine will work too.
You’ll need 20 hexagons and 12 pentagons plus some stuffing to make each football.
This is a perfect craft to do together with children, or perhaps as a ‘welcome to the world’ gift to a newborn baby.
The PDF file includes the full set of hexagons and pentagons for a football with the side 1 inch, ready to print out.
I have also included a separate page with hexagons and pentagons with 1.5 inch and 2 inch sides.
