I made this football ball for two boys. They are huge fans of CFR football team, hence the dark burgundy color on the ball, scarf and T-shirts.
My husband made me one hexagon and one pentagon out of cardboard and I used those to mark the hexagon shapes on the ball.Then I made the stitches and painted the pentagons.
I actually read this on another blog. I was planning on making it more difficult, by cutting out the shapes one by one and putting them on the cake.
So please check out Caroline's blog and read the actual post.
Thank you Caroline for sharing with us your method. You've been a great help!
