Has anyone found a place to purchase faux leather-look fabric that looks like the skin of a football, basketball, ... or other sports balls? I want to make some shirts for kids with football, basketball, soccer and baseball appliques and have seen some done that look so real. Jeanie

Check your local shoe repair places, upholstery outlets, thrift store finds for scraps. I cut up cheap gloves from Big Lots when I needed
non-slip sole spots for toddler shoes.
On Etsy they sell lots of appliques.
Also, save those sport T's with logos for later and make cool quilts
out of them.

The Robert Kaufman sports life is exactly what I've been looking for. Thanks!
