Alphabet beanbags


I made alphabet beanbags for my boys yesterday afternoon. 

I got the idea here, but changed a couple things like the size and my own stencils.  They were fun and easy to make...my favorite kind of project.




But they're even more fun for playing.




And you know a project was a good one when even your scraps are pretty.  How much of a freak am I that I stood and looked at these debating whether or not I should throw them out? 


(I did...  Eventually.)

  3. I have two bags of dried beans. And some scrap material (not as small as your scraps LOL). I should get some puff paint and make my own version (or some iron on letters). :)

  8. I've seen those around the net before. I really need to make some. My dad would be sad to know that the machine he got me two years ago hasn't sewn much. Guess it's time to bust it out. This project seems easy enough. Did you use the same measurements as the other blogger?

  12. What a cute and colorful idea. You can even have the children spell simple words with the different lettered bags, like through each letter in order (C-A-T). :o) When I homeschooled our children we would sometimes take our spelling tests outdoors with sidewalk chalk. :o)

  20. These are so cute! And you're not a freak--I would have pondered saving the scraps too, for card making.

  24. Super cute (as is everything I've seen on your site!) I do just want to mention, using beans as a filler can be an ugly mess if those beans get wet--think sprouts =( I always used unpopped popcorn when I fill beanbags, potential sprout problems avoided!!

  25. awww I can never throw away scraps! I do use corners to make bunting on cards though, glue them on and draw the thread and around them with a marker!
