Artist Bailey Hayes found a way to repurpose baseballs into original works of art. The American flag has never looked more American! The flag is made entirely out of used professional league baseballs. She takes each ball apart stitch by stitch, then unwinds the inside string which she then dyes navy or red.
Baily has already been commissioned by patriotic, baseball loving art collectors across the nation. One proud owner told us that no photogragh does the piece justice because of the detail and texture of the art. As we made our attempts to photograph the piece, we fell even more in love with Baily’s work. It made us smile-thinking of baseball and America this 4th of July season. All that was missing was the apple pie!
