I saw this game on Pinterest and thought it would fit in perfectly to our Charlie Brown Party this weekend!! It's so simple :)
I went to Wal Mart and searched for some fabric in their "discount bin"
I found some light brown ticking that had been marked down to $2.98 for 3/4's of a yard!!
While I have some thread and needles at home, I went ahead and bought some orange thread and some new needles.
I cut out six equal squares ( as equal as I could....I still ended up trimming some off the sides once I had them stitched together)
I believe these are called "whip stitches". Start the stitches on the top right....stitch down to the bottom and up the left side. Make a knot.
Turn it inside out. Poke the corners out with your fingers to make the bags square up. Fill with your choice of beans or rice or whatever. I used pinto beans in mine. :)
Fold the top sides inward and stitch shut.
What my finished bean bag looks like. I still have two more left to do, and I will paint a pumpkin on one and a Snoopy on the other. My 5 year old grandson has already found this and has been throwing it all around the house. He thinks it's AWESOME!!
I haven't bought the bucket yet, it was $2 at Wal Mart, and I am pretty sure I can go to the Dollar Tree and find one for $1 to make this game even cheaper!!
