Thank you for the soccer ball pattern. I have made two and have started on a third. You should warn they are addictive. Cheesy

Thanks! I'm glad that the pattern worked for you - I'd love to see the ones that you have done.

I recently saw these in a quilt shop and knew I had to try my hands at them. A few friends of us were expecting babies - what an ideal situation to try something new.



As neither I nor the parents of the recipients are particular soccer fans, I changed the color scheme. Each pentagon is surrounded by five different colored hexagons, no two adjacent pieces having the same color.

Once you have all the shapes it requires some patience to hand-sew all the shapes together, but apart from that it's a nice thing to patch together in the evenings while watching TV.

I put together a tutorial including the paper piecing templates added below.
I'd love to get feedback on the tutorial and see any soccer balls you sew Smiley

Thank you! I just bought the shirts second hand. My husband did not want to part with his. Expecially the button up is quite easy to make.
One thing I learned though is to check whether the shirts are button up or have a zipper. I only realized at home that one shirt had a zipper instead of buttons. Never saw a shirt like that before, not ideal for reconstruction...

Less than 15 days to go till due date - I finally got my husband to take pictures of the shirts I altered for myself.

I started 3 shirts, but finished only 2 - with this little time left to go, I'll wait for my next pregnancy to finish the last Smiley

1. Shirred maternity top




I used the following tutorial from DIY maternity - but kept the sleeves long, chopped the cuffs off and added some elastic instead because it's winter.

2. Button up baby doll shirt





Except for adding darts in the upper part, I followed this tutorial. A tutorial from DIY maternity as well.

Hardware/DIY stores over here most often offer to cut the wood for you for little or no money - wonderful for projects where you need long cuts.
Don't know if they do that in your place or if they offer any other angles than 90 - but might be worth a try.

Some old chairs have a base of "belts" woven as a base - usually as a base for springs - though it might be tricky to get the belts tight enough, but it might be an idea. The pictures on this site give you the idea, sorry it's in German.
