It is interesting that the first balls for soccerproduced from the bladder of the animal. The only inconvenience to the players of the time was that the ball bounces quickly led the main element of the game useless.
How to make a soccer ball of the more affordable materials, consider further.
You will need
- The needle, a sewing machine, a synthetic material, latex or butyl
Tire. Soccer ball consists of three main components - tires, pads, cameras. The choice of material depends on the strength of the tire of the ball and therefore the duration of the match. To often do not stop the game to replace the ball, take it out of synthetic material rather than from genuine leather. The skin is sensitive and absorbs moisture, which adversely affects the sphericity of the ball. Use synthetic materials such as polyurethane or polivinihloril.
Lining. Backing fabric is between the camera and the tire. It gives elasticity ball. The cheapest material for the lining - the fabric and the foam. These materials absorb moisture and, therefore, increase the weight of the ball. It is best to take the treated cotton fibers that repel water. They should be put at the stitching on each other in different directions. On this depends the flexibility of the ball, and the ability recoverability shape after impact.
Camera. Camera attached form ball rebound and it largely depends on its material. You can choose latex or butyl. Latex gives the sensitivity of the ball and eventually pass the air, therefore is subject to rapid deflation. Cameras made of butyl rubber will last longer, but they are bulky and hard.
Connecting three elements. Once you understand the material and find suitable, you should find a sewing machine. First, cut a few pieces of foreign material tires, sew the lining pieces to it, which should be placed on each other in a chaotic manner. The cross-linking all the materials from the wrong side. Once the process is suited to the last seam, connecting the side of the ball, remove it from the wrong side on the front. Insert the camera and sew a special thick needle the last stitch, hiding it inside.
