Someone posted a link recently for a pattern for a lifesize stuffed football, so I decided to give it a try. Here is my version. I didn't use cotton as was suggested by the pattern, but stuffed it tightly. My DGS is only 3, and didn't want it to be too stiff for him to play with. He can also use it as a pillow for when he's watching TV. It came from Jinny Beyer Studio, www.jinnybeyer.com.
