I didn't say I was doing it, but...I figure to make it like beach balls and other inflatable toys...rubbery plastic, cut sections with the seams melted together, like you were sewing a garment together. Like how a beach ball is made from...convex...strips to get an over-all spherical shape.

You could probably do the seams with a hand-held version - assuming such a thing exists - of something like those food vacuum sealers for food that melts the pouches edges together.

Probably take a lot of time, and trial & error...more than it's worth for me to be able/willing to put in...maybe when I retire and can presumably have the time to pursue my interests more.
