An even easier (and perhaps more geometrically correct) method of producing a perfectly round, plush ball.
This pattern (and all the other ones) can be found here: The Shishi Girl
Original softie ball pattern (12 pentagons) is here.
Don't forget to add a seam allowance all the way around. :3
sure, with fabric it's not very important, as you can stretch it however you want and most likely fit it; but to have the "precise" basic print, this is misleading
and of course that if you need a bigger or smaller ball you should increase the print size accordingly, why must you be stating the obvious.
Here is the abbreviated mathematics of this equation.
By the same equation, the division (by real numbers, and in this case 6) of the surface area of an infinitely scalable three-dimensional shape will produce a two-dimensional shape that is also infinitely scalable. The sewing lines are a decrease in scale from the exact outline. They are there for beginners and younger crafters who want to sew but have no experience with adding a seam allowance.
Now, with all of that established, why don't you try the pattern out before you decide that there's something wrong with it? Go ahead and make a ball, then take a photo and post it. Show me where you think it goes wrong.
I notice you have yet to upload anything to DA, but you seem awfully fond of criticizing other people's work. This is not the way to achieve anything good.
Next time I' ll try it again, hopefully it will turn to be a round good ball.
Thanks for sharing your pattern ^^
Please say hello to your little daughter for me! *waves* I bet she's a cutie! ^_^
Thanks for posting this, my friend and I will be using it to make our Gilbird/Peep-Peep (a baby chicken plush for cosplay).
score, 4 P's in a row!
