We've all seen or maybe even made an I Spy quilt, or some I Spy bags, or even I Spy books.
Here's a new twist on I Spy....
12 different fabric scraps
Needle for hand sewing
Trace pentagon template on the different scraps of fabric. For I spy projects I like to have the template as pictured above where I can see placement of the picture of the fabric piece.
Here are my 12 pieces. All different. All of them things my son likes. Choose one for a center piece.
Take the center piece and grab another piece. Put them right sides together and sew.
Press seams to one side.
Take another piece and put right sides together with the center piece.
Sew and then press seams to one side.
Repeat with 4 more pieces. Here is what it will look like.
Now we need to join all of the outside pieces together. fold so your center piece is folded in half.
Now fold the two pieces at the top point of the center piece right sides together.
(The center piece should still be folded in half. This will prevent folds or bubbling on the ball)
Repeat with remaining pieces.
It will look somewhat like a bowl at this point.
Put this half aside. Repeat with the remaining 6 pieces.
Here are my 2 halves of the ball.
Put them right sides together as in the picture.
Start sewing. I sewed the frog onto the baseballs. Then sewed the Transformer piece to the baseball piece.
Next I sewed the Transformer piece to the monkey piece.
Continue sewing them together leaving an opening to turn.
Turn right side out and stuff with polyfil.
After it is stuffed to your liking whip stitch the opening closed.
