Stitching an Artisanal American Football

Watch more with these video collections:

This is how a football is stitched and laced by hand, as demonstrated in 2011 by LemonBall and Leather Head Sports founder Paul Cunningham, courtesy of director Pascal Perich and Etsy. Cunningham has been selling handmade baseballs, footballs, medicine balls, rugby balls, and more online since 2007.

In the archives: more sports, more handmade, and more profiles.
