Crafty K: DIY hacky sack (footbag)!



My sister had wanted a hacky sack and since I was making it, I just wanted to share :) Hacky sacks can be great stocking stuffers since Christmas is right around the corner ;)


I started out by printing out a template (rounded triangle) on card-stock paper (I printed different sizes just in case). This will be one of the four sections of your hacky sack.


I cut out my template and traced it four times onto some felt-fabric.

 
Cut it.


 
Then I sewed the four pieces like this :) I love this diagram (got it from here). More details on how to sew this can be found at that same link.



Hacky sacks can be filled up using many things but I used white sand and filled it up through the one side of the triangle I did not sew.



Blind stitch the last section of the hacky sack and voila! You're done! How do you think I did? :P
These were pretty fun to make and I was surprised at how short of a time it took to make each one. These are so addicting I might try making ones with more panels :p

You make that look easy. I suck at sewing lol. Just curious, what are footbags for?

you know hacky sack has always been one of the things that I wanted to get good at, same as solving a rubix cube... but I just SUCK! perhaps it's my lack of balance hahaha!
