If any of you or anybody you know participated in the Beer Olympics and Power and Light this weekend, the bean bags were made by yours truly. I know somebody who was volunteering and she contacted me on Monday and asked if I would be willing to make 32 bean bags before Saturday night. Of course, I said yes, even though I was busy Tuesday night and was leaving Thursday night. That pretty much left Wednesday night. I’m crazy. I know. However, it was a very fast project and I even made 21 of each color instead of 16 of each color just in case a few were ruined.
I cut six inch strips of fabric. I had a yard of each fabric so I was able to get six rows. I put two rows together and sewed down two sides. Then I cut the rows into six inch squares. I sewed down one other side of each square, turned them, and filled them with a cup of rice. Then I turned under the raw edges of the open side and top stitched it closed. I went over it twice just to make sure it wouldn’t easily come apart. Then I top stitched the other three sides. Easy peasy.
