Pinterest PinAddicts Challenge no. 2

Here we go with the second Pinterest challenge.  I'd had a counting game of some sort in mind for ages for Little E and cousin Grace, and finally settled on the one below here is the link .  I made a drawstring type bag for them to live in   as I've never put a zip in anything. Then I appliqued Little E and Graces name on them.


So pretty fabrics chosen and cut out I blanket stitched around the numbers on the machine and sewed them up before pillaging  Little E's beanbag chair for 'beans' . We added some rice to give a bit of extra weight for good throwing action.  Little E helped filll the bags so this wasn't the tidiest of operations.


Et voila! (photo overload).



Little E's set, almost identical.

 



This months challenge is hosted over at Melksham Mum so I'll be trawling through the other wonderful makes myself over there at lunchtime. Looking forward to next month

  9. Hi, I love your beanbags (and the bags for them to go in)! I was also going to make them for Pinaddicts but decided against it when I saw yours! I've made them now though and I linked to yours from my blog. I hope you don't mind but please let me know if there's a problem.
