Made with Love – Bean Bags

Welcome back to Made With Love – our monthly link party to showcase your Me time activities, whether it’s sewing, painting, crafting, gardening, cooking or other crafty endeavour please share below.

Brought to you by Rainy Day Mum, Angelique Felix.com and Mommy Labs we welcome you back.

Made With Love LinkyMy me time activity has been making some bean bags (well technically rice bags) for J’s little girl friend for her birthday and J and T to play with as well.

These are very easy to make – I used fat quarters of solid fabric and folded them half, then half again and then half again – meaning that when I opened up and cut along the lines I would have 8 pieces from each fat quarter.

To make up – I folded the piece in half and stitched around 3 of the sides fully and left a gap big enough to turn the bag inside out and fill it up. I then turned it inside out and made a funnel out of paper (I didn’t realise that I don’t actually have a funnel in my kitchen supplies) and filled the bags with broken rice (which they sell in our supermarket in large bags) and hand sewed up the final gap.

    I am really thankful to the holder of this website who has shared this fantastic
    paragraph at at this time.

  2. Hi there! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask. Does managing a well-established website like yours take a lot of work? I’m brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal every day. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

  3. Bean bags is something I’ve never made. You make it look do-able and so pretty and colourful. I hope to give it a try, too.

    I loved those altered denim aprons!

  4. It looks very easy to make Cerys! Have to go it a try for my playgroups..
    Love the Made with Love bloghop!

  5. Love your bean bags. Bean bags have been on my to-do list forever. Definitely need to make them before the summer heats and the extreme heat drives us inside. They will help us keep active inside.
