Thanks msthang1224 - (Before I got your answer) I wrapped it around the ball so that I had to pinch the ends and had one seam down the middle... worked out really well as I can use the seam of fondant as a seam of the football! It is going on a stand (the superbowl trophy) so just wish me luck on the stand! I will post pics when it's done!
Yr very welcome
Yes, we want to see yr masterpiece
