    It's basically a soccer ball so I'm not sure of the origin, haha! 20 hexagons, 12 pentagons. You can find others online too! I made my own templates though. Side lengths have to be the same... mine are 5/8". Great for scraps and too cute for words.

    I haven't made one yet, but a while back I copied a tutorial from this site:

    it is cute- looks like it came from the book "Puzzle Balls" by Jenny Beyer- there are a number of great fabric balls in the book to choose from- we've been using the book for years to teach the young kids to hand sew (Scouts, 4-H, preschool, elementary) it is a fun project - make great hacky-sacks, pin cushions, toys, ornaments... fun, fun. when we made pin cushions I used a canning jar ring for a base-so the cushion would not roll all over the table.

    Haha.. I didn't do any math! I just measured the side after I finished because you asked.
    But I can say that doing 5/8" sides make a 3-3.5" ball. Make one!

    Hey! I had seen this one too but just FYI... her templates are off a bit, at least the hexagons. It may have just been my computer. This is why I made my own.

    Actually, I was nervous that it would NOT come out so round but it did! I started stuffing when I had just 2-3 shapes to add. I used polyfil and just packed it in until I was happy with the shape. Happy sewing!
