When it comes to sports, we've got you covered! Whether it's football, baseball, basketball or soccer, it's always fun to create projects and gifts for sports fans to enjoy off the field. With the Super Bowl just around the corner, we wanted to share some cute sports-themed projects and prints to wrap up in while watching the big game.
These sports-themed minky plush fabrics work great as a minky plush throw blanket to take to outdoor sporting events, or used as a bedspread or pillowcase for the little (or not-so-little) sports fanatic in your life.
To make the ball shaped pillows and shapes, we used a number of cutting dies from AccuQuilt. We got creative and used the circle shape and size from our Silly Cuddle® Monster Pillow free pattern to make the basketball shape.
Most of the pillows were stuffed with our favorite polyester stuffing from Fairfield World and created using Metrosene polyester thread from Mettler. For the strip quilt, we used batting from Quilters Dream Batting, 505 temporary adhesive basting spray from ODIF and many of our other favorite sewing notions and tools.
We hope you find some inspiration below to create your own sports-themed projects, and may the best team win!
Projects and Ideas
The unique strip quilt sports blanket features Allstars Cuddle® Blue, accented with strips of Cuddle® 3 Snow, Luxe Cuddle® Hide Caviar and Luxe Cuddle® Marble Rust. We used our Picture Perfect Cuddle® Quilt free pattern but changed it up a bit. The finished quilt measure approximately 38" x 58" when finished.
For all you football fans, we'll be creating a free pattern for the football pillow (check our Free Patterns page for updates)! The football was created in Cuddle® 3 Brown and Cuddle® 3 Snow.
The basketball pillow made in Luxe Cuddle® Marble Rust and Cuddle® 3 Black.
And, we're super excited! We have a free pattern coming soon for not just this fun football stuffie, but this football quilt as well! The football quilt/blanket was made in Cuddle® Dimple Brown and Cuddle® 3 Snow.
The football quilt is great for a throw for the family room, a stadium blanket or enlarge it for a bed size quilt!
For all you soccer fans, out there, we've also got a pillow for you! We made this giant soccer ball pillow in Cuddle® 3 Snow and Black.
