Re-Skinning a Baseball
Posted at 8:13 PM • May 21 2020 • Ryan Popoff
We take a baseball and wrap some lovely Horween leather around it. Why? Because we can.
In this YouTube video, Bob takes apart a baseball and re-skins it with our English Tan Horween leather. We use the pattern provided below for the cut-out, but you will have to provide your own supplies. In this video we use the following items:
- Scratch Awl
- Craft Knife
- Chisel Punch
- Harness Needles
Download the template below and watch the video to see how it's done. The baseball stitch that we use can be a bit tricky, so be sure to also check out this video where go into depth how to do a baseball stitch.
People ask me what I do in the winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.
