Just made it

I have finally finished my June item for the 12 month craft challenge. I only just made it though.
I decided to make a ball for Joseph-with all the toys he has been given he doesn't have a ball. I made a pattern piece that I thought looked about right-I was wrong they were too fat so after sewing it all together I had to cut two panels out so it didn't look like a pumpkin! I used red ribbon for tags and different textured fabric. I think it looks ok now and more importantly he loves it.
