Make It Monday! A Felt Football For Your Dolls

Karen here and it is Make It Monday again! Today I am sharing how to make an easy Felt Football for your dolls.
To make your own you will need:
-Dark Brown felt
-White Felt
-A Glue Gun
-Stuffing such as fiberfill or tissue
 Step 1- Assemble all your supplies and draw shape on your paper that looks like mine above. Mine is 4 inches long through the center and 2.5 inches wide through the center. Cut it out this is your football pattern.
Step 2- Cut out for pieces of brown felt using your pattern piece.
Step 3- Plug in your glue gun and heat it up.
Step 4- Cut out 8 1 inch long very thin strips of felt to be your stitches and one 2.5 inch long thin piece of white to glue over the stitches.
Step 4- Run a line of glue down one edge of your felt shape and press another on top. Repeat on each of the felt until you have glued three pieces on.
Step 5- Attach the last piece along one side as you did in the previous steep, leaving one side open to stuff.
Step 6- Stuff your felt pocket and then add the last line of glue and seal your football.
Step 7- Trim the edges of your ball. Add more glue if you happen to open the seams as you go.
Step 8- Glue on the eight stitches and then Glue on the longer strip. Let dry.
Step 9- Give to your dolls to play! I used a flesh tone elastic to get the dolls to hold the felt ball.
* The Football figures were in my son's happy meal from McDonald's and are perfect for doll play!
I hope you enjoyed today's Make it Monday Post!

I look forward to sharing more doll play crafts and ideas with you soon.
