Step 1: First, create your baseball shape by tracing a circle on the white felt. Repeat this on red felt for the backside of the baseball. Then, cut out both circles.
Note: If you plan to personalize your baseball ornament with stickers, now is the time to think about what size circle/baseball you need in order to accommodate the amount of letters you will be using.
Step 2: Draw “V”’s on the backside of the white felt circle where your red stitches will go.
Step 3: Next, using the “V”’s drawn on the backside to guide you, sew red stitches to the front side of the white felt circle.
Step 4: Now, sew the red felt circle to the back of your white baseball using white yarn.
Step 5: Sew an ornament loop to the top of the baseball using a needle and ribbon. Then tie the ends together to form a loop for hanging.
Step 6: Finally, use foam letter stickers to personalize the baseball with a player’s name, number or team name.
Tip: Use markers to color the white foam letter stickers with your favorite teams colors.
