Drawing of a Baseball

This tutorial shows students how to draw a baseball and make all those stitches look pretty real. It starts with a plan for evenly spaced holes, and then rows of V-shaped stitches. Those that want to make a meticulous version copy can count the holes, if they wish. But others that just want a general version of the real thing will be fine with just estimating. Either way, having lots of those little stitches following the curve of the seam will look just like a real baseball.

The history of baseball in the United States dates to the 18th century, when boys and admirers played a baseball-like game by their own made up rules using homemade equipment. The popularity of the sport grew and men’s ball clubs were formed in the 1830-50s. Now, the game is known as “America’s Pastime”.

Materials for a Baseball Drawing

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. Don’t waste your money on the cheapest brand. These make nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. The perfect medium size tip marker for tracing.
  • Crayons. I like this non-toxic brand that is made from beeswax, not petroleum by-products.
  • Note: All of the above are Amazon affiliate links.
