  3. These are so cute! I’m going to make one out of the Seattle Seahawks fabric for the center with football fabric for the back and then on the front I’m going to add some lime green bias tape over the seam on each side.and a lime green button. I’m making mine for a friend who is a seahawks fan as a gift.

    1. Mary, What a fun idea for a sports fan! I have a couple of Steelers fans in my family…maybe I need to make some more! Thanks for the idea! I like adding the buttons and the bias tape too, sounds cute!
