Attention football fans: Reserve the best seat in the house with this homemade pad, or bring it to the stadium for a more comfy spot in the bleachers.

What you'll need

  • Scissors
  • 1/2 yard of brown vinyl
  • 12- by 20-inch piece of 1-inch-thick high-density foam (available at fabric stores)

  • 2 yards of 1/2-inch-thick white twill tape

How to make it

  1. Gear Up for the Game - Step 1

    Hot-glue the vinyl edges together, using clothespins to hold them in place while the glue dries.

  3. Glue on pieces of twill tape for laces, as shown.
