Sewing the Strips together to Make a Volleyball Keychain
Now, sew the short edges of 2 strips together, so you have 2 loops. Put one inside the other.
Now, weave the 3rd strip in and out between around the 2 other strips so they interlock with each other (see video) and sew the short edges of the last strip together. Then stuff the ball and align the strips to show no sewing lines or stuffing.
