    Experiment - EPP ball

    I am working on a GFG, and I thought, I could use EPP for other oddly-shaped motifs as well.
    So I printed out a soccer ball coloring sheet, cut up pretty fabrics, basted onto the shapes, and finally stitched them together.
    Ta-dah, isn't it delicious?

    What a clever idea! This is wonderful/ Are you making a real ball as well? I think little ones would love one to play with.

    Oh yes, this is the the soccer ball template. I guess one could choose fabrics of higher or lower contrast depending on how "soccer ball" you want it to look
