    Nice Instructable!

    Back in the day, when hacky sacks first became popular (at least in my neck of the woods), they were leather and a lot smaller than the knit ones you see now. About the size of a golf ball. (Sold by Wham-O, it was labeled "Official Footbag". I can only assume there was an Association)

     They were made like a baseball - two dumbbell shaped pieces. Maybe that would be a lot easier to sew together.

    Ebay has a few listed that might have better pictures.

    In fact, now that I think about it, I made one out of scrap leather - the tounges of work boots.
