Great Pokeball




About: I love sewing!!! It is a fun hobby of mine. I began sewing in 2015, and have made over 50 items. Check out my website!!!

Here is a tutorial on how I made the Great ball from Pokémon.

I also have provided FREE templates down below. There is also a video beneath this photo tutorial.

Hope you enjoy :)

Step 1:

Step 2: Gather Materials

Materials required:

- Great ball template (

- Fleece: blue, black, white

- Felt: red

- Matching threads: blue, black, white, red

- Stuffing

- Sewing needle, scissors, pins/marker

** This template can also be used for a regular pokeball (red and white).

1) Cut out all the template pieces with the corresponding fabric.

Step 3: Sewing the Circle Pieces

2) Sew the two white pieces together with a blanket stitch.

Repeat with the two blue pieces.

Step 4: Add Details

3) Add details you want on the top of the ball with a running stitch (up and down stitch).

In this case, it is the red stripes on the pokeball.

Step 5: Putting Your Ball Together

4) Putting the good sides together of the blue and white piece, sew around with a blanket stitch.

Leave a small hole so you can turn it inside out.

Step 6: Closing It Up

5) Turn the ball inside out and stuff it.

To close up the ball, use a ladder stitch.

Step 7: Attaching the Black Stripe

6) Using the 1cm black material, wrap it around the pokeball and sew it on with a back stitch.

Make sure the black material is long enough to wrap around the pokeball.

Step 8: The Button

7) Place the white circle on top of the black circle.

Sew the white circle on with matching thread.

Repeat with black thread, making a smaller circle.

Step 9: Nearly There...

8) Sew the button on using a back stitch.

Congratulations, you are finished.

Step 10: Alternative Option...

Here is the masterball template for all those wanting to make more!!!!
