A football (soccer ball)

Beaded football

Today we will make a football (in American variation - a soccer ball) out of beads.
We will need:
- seed beads of two colors (I used size 8 seed beads of light-yellow and black colors);
- a wooden or rubber ball to fill the inner space of the beaded ball (for size 8 seed beads you need a ball of 3.8 cm in diameter);
- nylon threads of two colors (the same colors as the colors of beads);
- one or two beading needles (we will use the beading technique of brick stitch, so you can do with one needle only).
