It was not an exact science putting it together and it is not a perfect sphere but Its simple and My little boy loves his.Even now he still kicks it round our living room.
I'm now making one for my Little girl in the same way.
I'm not the best at sewing and I don't own a sewing machine. I was even worse when I made Lucas' I only knew three stitches at the time Back stitch, running stitch and over stitch so thats all the "skill" you will need to make it.
The lettering is obviously not required for it to work as a ball, I admit I got brave with that and i could have quite easily made a real mess of it. I had small iron on Butterflies I had bought on stand by if it needed unpicking again.
