Step 2 - cut out 12 circles - it doesn't matter if they're not perfect. I think mine were about 8" in diameter
Step 3 - take 3 of your triangle shaped pattern pieces and with right sides together, sew down the sides but not in the circle indent
Here you can see what the wrong side looks like all sewn together. Also notice that the hole is open in the side seam.
Repeat these steps with each set of 3 triangles!
Step 4 - take one of the circles and with right sides together, you're going to slowly bunch together the circle to the circular hole in the side seam
With the raw edges lined up, sew the rest of the circle closed.
Repeat these steps with all the circles!!!!
Step 5 - Now, take one group of 3 triangles and place them right sides together with another. This is going to make one half of your ball! You'll need to sew 2 more circles into this half of the ball. Repeat with the other sets of 3 triangles
OK, so now you have both halves!
Step 6 - put your halves right sides together and sew all along the edge but leave a 4" opening to stuff!!!
Step 7 - Stuff your ball! Sew the opening closed after you fill it to your liking! Stuff in some jingle bells, cellophane paper, squeaker toys, etc. to make it even more exciting!
