DIY Soccer Balls
Soccer—or “football”—is a sport played all over the world, and the ball being kicked can range from top-quality World Cup balls, to handmade plastic or cloth ones. Some DIY soccer ball designs have been leveraged into viable business enterprises creating jobs for stitchers through local production. All DIY soccer balls represent a design achievement in bringing the sport to children who otherwise wouldn’t have access to it. Liza Forester and Marti Guixe focused on the creation of a sustainable enterprise in the development of the conceptual project, Let’s Kick It, which provides women and orphan girls afflicted by AIDS with patterns to stitch fabric soccer balls that are then stuffed with plastic bags and sold. Make your own DIY balls using football tape and recycle plastic bags as seen in the photo above.
