I made a little baseball outfit (coming soon) for a friend of mine who was having a baby. Her husband follows a team OTHER than the one I follow, though the colors are the same. I'll post the rest of the outfit soon, but first....where all outfits should start-the bow. These little guys are so easy to make.
I bought some fabric and cut out four circles, and then I grabbed some buttons-baseball shaped buttons (found these little guys at Hobby Lobby).
I left one flat, but I folded the other four in half, and then in half again until I had a quarter of a circle. I glued these together at the point (from the inside).
I glued all four folded quarters around the flat circle, then added the ball to the middle. I added some elastic to the back (again, with the glue). I covered up the elastic with a scrap of fabric. Easy...and about 2 bucks cheaper than even the cheapest flower at the craft store.
As for the elastic piece, the sizes usually range around the following sizes: Newborn-13 inches 0-1 year-14 inches 1-6 year-14 inches 7-teen-15 inches Adult-17.5 inches
