How to Make Pentagon SpheresTry this method for creating stuffed spheres from pentagons.
|Step 1: Join six pentagons into a flower shape. Then make a second flower.|
|Step 2: Join the sides of those pentagon “petals.” This creates a cuplike shape. Do the same with the other flower to make a second cup. Make sure both cups have their right sides to the inside.|
|Step 4. Remove the templates and gently turn the ball right side out. Stuff it with the material of your choice, and then sew the opening closed with a ladder stitch.|
