Baby Taggie Stuffed Football

Every Sunday, Connor and his Daddy watch football. Sunday is Mommy's resting & shopping day! Anyway, I always say that he needs a little football outfit for Sundays, but all his football-themed clothing is still too big. So I made him a little football toy...that's also too big! He'll grown into it : )
I followed the pattern from The Train to Crazy with a few changes of my own. I had this thick white woven strips leftover from the belt I made. I reinforced the ends so they wouldn't fray.

I cut 7 inch pieces of ribbon for the taggies.

Then I pinned everything together and sewed the taggies on.

Using the fabric pattern from the link above, I cut my football-shaped fabric and put everything together.

With the right sides in, I sewed the football together and left an opening for stuffing.
I also added a few small jingle bells inside the stuffing to add some noise for the baby.

After stuffing the football, I hand-stitched the small opening closed.

Here he is showing off his new football! (Not too excited that day, but oh well...)

And since we're in Bears territory, I also made a Chicago Bears football.


  1. Cute! I need to make a taggie for Alex, he loves sucking on tags.

  2. oh, super's almost as big as he is, lol.

  3. I love it! When we have a boy, I'm going to have to make one of these.:)

  4. What baby wouldn't love a taggy football! Such a great idea!

  6. What a cute idea!!! Love the football and the football fan.

  7. Very cute! I'm not crafty at all though! I'll take a Packers one please. Of course, that would be major conflict of interest with the Bears, wouldn't it? :-) I'll pass this on to a friend who totally would make one!

  8. So cute!! I am going to have to make one for my little girl to watch football with her daddy. I am pinning this so I can come back. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Oh how i wish I could sew -- this is adorable!


  10. Lisa, this is such a darling idea for a baby toy! I'm featuring your post on my Facebook page today.


  11. This is so cute. I've pinned it to use in the future for my sister. She and her new husband would love it! Now they just need to have baby ;-)

  12. Thanks for coming by my blog :) I really like your taggie football- so clever the way you used the taggies as the laces!
