  4. Soccer Basketball Set The majority of the patterns will need to be printed on an A3 printer, the giant size patterns will need to be printed on an A1 printer. I only ever made the soccer and basketballs in thick vinyl but I don't think there should be any problems with making them in leather. Soccer Basketball Patterns.pdf

  8. Took me quite awhile to recover from surgery this time as well as some other stuff going on but finally can get the patterns to everyone who is interested in them.I'm not going to be able to put together a picture instruction booklet as everything has now been packed up to get ready to sell I'm happy to provide written instructions though for those who want to try and make them how I did. First set of patterns are for American Footballs American Football Patterns.pdf
  9. Got another round of appointments this week and 2nd operation is booked for 22nd March hopefully I can tidy up some stuff before then.I'll Pm you when I can make sure that hubby can get to the post office. Thank you It's one of my favourites as well it was done for a fan of the Fremantle Dockers not my team I go for the West Coast Eagles otherwise I may of kept it. Thank you, I'm going to do up a booklet for those interested with photos or illustrations (need something to occupy me while recovering from the operation) and share it here but it may take me a little while but I'll go into more detail once that's done. For now yes on most of the balls the stitching finishes at the lacing the light ball with red cross (rugby) has no laces and there is a bit of a knack to the way the stitching should be done with those. All the dark balls are dyed with Fiebings oil dye for the detail areas it was either Craftsha dye (japanese) or oil dye conditioned with neatsfoot oil & finished with Montana Pitch Blend. Only exception was the silver fern on the NZ ball that was Pearl Ex silver powder mixed with satin sheen. The ones with antiquing red cross, anchor & Texas Fiebings paste was used. All the balls are sewn with Tiger thread either 1 or 1.2mm depending on the colour.
  10. Thank you guys means a lot, LeatherWorthy i'll give it a month for the lot of the patterns & if there are no takers I'll pass the American patterns on to you at no cost. If your interested I have two mallet punch knives (pee wee & full size) for the shapes that go under the laces to protect the bladder you can have them for $30 AUD ea + postage hubbys work should of quietened down by then as well so he should be able to get to the post office for me.
  11. Been a little while since I've been here and even longer since I've done any leather work, would like to show some of my previous stuff though as it doesn't look like I will be able to continue with leather work due to some ongoing medical problems & loss of employment from my main occupation. I'm also showing my stuff as I feel this could be a good idea for someone else to take over I would be willing to do a booklet up to show how they are made. Someone could take over the whole thing I made five types of balls or I could split it down into what you are interested in either American football, Australian football, rugby, soccer and basketball. I will be selling off all my equipment in the next few weeks as well, first pick for equipment & supplies will go to any members located in Perth, Western Australia as it's difficult for me to get to the post office at the moment. The photos show my website but it's no longer up if you are interested in taking over the whole thing I could give you the website files so you could update yourself it was made in Xara web designer which isn't that expensive. I don't have any photos of soccer or basketballs as I had only had made plain ones to make sure the patterns were right before I came down with the medical problems. The Texas ball has a bit of a mistake the design didn't line up properly I normally checked everything but forgot to on this occasion I was going to remake it but never got around to it. If your interested in taking it over contact me by pm it will be first come first served for taking over the whole thing.I'll provide all the patterns for making them they will be full sized American football, mini American football, giant American football,full size Australian football, mini Australian football, giant Australian football, full size rugby, mini rugby, giant rugby, five types of soccer ball and a basketball. If there are no takers for the whole thing it will be first come first served for where the sport is played the most ie American (USA), Australian (Australia),Rugby (either Australia,New Zealand, South Africa or United Kingdom), Soccer (anywhere) & basketball (anywhere). I'm not after any payment for this just an acknowledgement when you first post stuff here and on the website somewhere ie a shout out if I decide to do something else art based. I could see it being successful for someone who's quite into sports and wants to make something a bit different. I'll try to get back to any interested people as soon as I can but I have some appointments this week so it may take a day or two for me to reply. Just one last thing I don't recommend anyone taking it over if you have wrist problems as they are hand sewn partly the reason I'm giving it up. Cheers, cem
  12. Cool, I'd heard of them before tried to order some but they wanted me to order a box at a time of each colour which would take me quite a few life times to get through. Is the blue brighter than Tiger ie more Royal than Navy they sent me pics and it seems to be but it's hard to tell from screens.
  13. The other Leather magazine Shoptalk publishes digitally they are on issuu.com they don't do patterns though.
