A break from hexagons to make a gift for a baby. It’s useful to have a mathematician husband who tells you, just as you blindly set off the wrong path, that you cannot make a ball with only hexagons… So rather than make a true football (hexagons and pentagons), a quick online search led me to Abby Glassenberg’s useful tutorial, and templates, so I didn’t need to work out Alone that I needed twelve pentagons. A few hours later, a little flannel ball was born. A Kinder egg provided a little plastic container in the middle, with a little bell inside. A very satisfactory tingle!

Stuffed with polyester, and stitched up!

That was fun! Now, to make another, while visiting my ‘onions’ quilt.
Happy stitching! JJ
