Things2Make: Bean Bags

by Bob Shaw

Material, needle & cotton, dried peas or any other type of stuffing.

Fold a piece of material in half, then stitch all around the outside leaving a 2cm gap. Turn the bag inside out by pushing it through the hole, so that the stitching is hidden on the inside. Fill the bag with dried peas / beans. Finally stitch up the little hole.

This makes a standard bag, but think about how you can easily make pyramids or cubes by cutting the material into a pattern before you stitch it together! You can also choose different types of stuffing, cotton wool for example makes a lovely soft ball.
