How to make a bracelet out of a baseball!

Step 1: Using a knife, cut dashed slits around the inside of the stitches.

 

Step 2: Follow the dashes and cut all the way through the skin.

 

Step 3: Pull the skin away from the guts.

 

Step 4: Trim the white of the ball to desired thickness.

 

Step 5: Cut in half.

 

Step 6: Soak in hot water for an hour or two, until plyable and stretchable.  I was in a dorm room so I used hot water from the shower and changed the water every time it cooled off but a pot of water on a low setting would be much easier!

 

Step 7: Stretch out your leather a little bit, just to straighten it out.

 

Step 8: Cut in half one more time.  (You’ll probably have enough for two bracelets!)

 

Step 9: Unlace the stitches a bit on each side, leaving string to tie it around your wrist.

 

Step 10: Tie your bracelet around your wrist and you’re good to go 🙂
