Last week, a friend at work ask if I could make her a burlap football. Even though I had never made one, I said "Sure". Friday night I got on line and found several tutorials. I made my first one on Saturday. I am not going to post that photo because we will call it a learning experience. I woke up this morning with a great idea on how I was going to make them. My Mom is an LSU fan so I made one for her also.
The tutorial said to staple the front to the back and I DID NOT LIKE that. I decided to stitch the front to the back with crochet yarn. Once I cut the burlap, I painted the front part of the footballs with acrylic paint. Once they dried, I started stitching the front to the back. When I was almost complete, I stuffed them with left over plastic grocery bags. (Great way to recycle).
I made 3 Alabama footballs and 1 LSU football (for my MOM because I Love her)
This is how I spent my Sunday afternoon.
Have a great week!!!
