Balloon Fabric Ball

I made this balloon fabric ball for my great nephew, Benjamin. (Of course it can be filled with batting instead.) We had these when my boys were little and they were called Balzac. We had a blast playing with them in the pool in Florida on vacation.
I'll tell him it's great aunt Debbie's "Magic Ball"!
Here is the pattern I used by placing a piece of paper on my screen and gently tracing.
If you look at the picture in the bottom right hand corner you can see a round orange circle. This is the opening I left to not only be able to turn the fabric inside out after stitching but also place to insert the balloon.

Sorry I am so very slow at looking at my comments and checking out your link but just wanted to say you have done a great job turning the ball into a balloon ball! It looks fantastic! Ashley from Stitches and Love :)
