Bean Bag Birds Tutorial by The Handmade Adventures

with 1 Comment

I am always mesmerized by little things and these little bean bag birds are no exception!  Their size is perfect for snatching up by little hands….but not big enough to take out a lamp.  You have a choice of hand sewing them or machine sewing them.  I am thinking you could probably get a few new stitchers to give you a hand at making the bean bag, don’t you?

Besides being a great first sewing project, they would make a wonderful present for a little one.  Make a bunch of the bean bags and stuff them into a small container for their own personal bean bag toss game.

While the pattern calls for a shrunken wool sweater {which is a brilliant way to upcycle} the bean bags could easily be made with wool felt, or any fabric lying around in the sewing box.

The fun about them {besides their size} is that they can be made – mix and match style, or 3 look alikes for a game of toss- each player getting their own team colors.  I am thinking this would be a great Birthday game too!
