Hackysack for the fun of it

Recommended Posts

I got a pattern for this hackysack on here some place, so I gave it a go, just for the fun of it.

The leather is some chrome tan for a scrap grab-bag from Spotlight (similar to Joanne's Fabrics I guess), stitched with 0.6 Tiger thread at 3.0mm spacing.

I believe it was started in the US universities by students. They kick a small soft ball/bag of beans or similar back and forwards between each other. They count how many times they can keep it off the floor. One person can also kick it about by themselves, also counting the number of kicks they can accumulate without it touching the floor.

 

Also what HW said ...
