    Quilted Football

    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.Name:  IMG_1676.JPG

    My mom made me one as our ringbearer pillow for in white and Chocolate for my wedding a couple years ago now. it was really cute. My DH is really into football so I thought it was really fitting. and he even tried to get the ring bearer to spike it when he got down the isle it was really cute.
