does anyone know of or has anyone made a pattern for a football helmet? I want to make my husband a quilt in the theme of his favorite NFL team, It will be for a fall carepackage while he is deployed since he will miss football season.

If none knows of one, is it possibler that I could just take a picture and trace i onto freezer paper or fusible web? has anyone done something like that before?

Taking a photograph and enlarging it sounds your best bet, do you have a black and white setting on your camera if so, it would be easier to define the areas for tracing - good luck, I guess you have already tried googling football helmets??? :D

I just did a quick search and there are a few entries for football appliqued banners which you could look at for inspiration there is one with the helmet ball and court in the background which would make a lovely quilt!!

Good luck!!

Are you looking for a pieced helmet or applique only?

How about looking up clip art football helmet? You could enlarge it to whatever size you wanted.

Have you seen the NFL and college football fabric here? You may want to check out the team's website for ideas.

I did a search and found the one with the field and helmets, I might resort to buying it just for the helmet and football applliques!
