I finally have some time on my hands to make another Instructable! Today I bring to you a finger football set made by an old football and some other miscellaneous materials. I am not the best fabricator but I try my best so don't mind the mistakes. To make a nice finger/table football set you will need the following:

  • Old football/leather
  • Sewing machine or needle with string
  • 26" dowel rod (any diameter)
  • 2 Clothespins
  • Wood glue and stain
  • Scissors-Knife-Hammer

Step 1: Clean and Cut Leather

Clean and shine the leather for a sleek mini football. Then measure out the triangles.

The spine/long edge should be 2.5" Then in the middle of the line at 1.25" measure a perpendicular line 1.5" long. Then connect the other points to form a triangle.

Cut the leather triangles and prepare for the stitching process.

<p>This looks like great fun. Thanks for sharing do have a super day!</p><p>sunshiine </p>
<p>Thank You Sunshiine! </p>
<p>We used to play this all the time at restaurants while waiting for our order to arrive. We played where you have to flick across the table and if it hangs over the edge you get to kick a field goal. </p>
<p>We used to do the same when I was a kid. Really passes the time.</p>
<p>How fun! Great idea!</p>
<p>Really smart use of an old football - they look super nice! :D</p>
<p>Thanks! Threading was a bit difficult but they turned out better than I expected! </p>
