I want to know how to make the bean bags for the game bean bag toss... is it hard to do?

WE are invited to a bbq and one little requirement is to bring bean bags for a bean bag toss game... so I though that would be a neat craft to do with my daughter , granting it was not costly or difficult.. so I would like to know how to do it?

  • I made some cute ones with baby socks. I just filled them up and sewed the top closed.

  • There are two diffierent ways i do this first way is the simplest take old socks that dont fit anymore (no holes though) insert beans and sew the top closed viola instant bean bag and the other was is to sew small (i use 5inch square squares) together leave an opening for turning and filling and fill with beans or rice and sew shut either by hand or machine and you can use scrap fabric for this too its super easy

  • I would just get some fabric and cut into squares. Take 2 squares and sew them together but leave an opening to fill them with beans or rice and then sew the rest.

  • If you buy felt, you can do a whipstitch, that'll look nice. I sew regular cotton right sides together, leaving an opening, and then turn it right side out. After filling, I do a slipstitch to close the bag.
