Make Cute Bean Bags

May 15th, 2011 by zoe 4 Comments

Little Bird Bean Bags are whipped together with the wool from a shrunken sweater and scraps of craft felt.  If you have patient child you could work on it together.  I made them with a cosmo, and an episode of Treme’ after the kids were asleep!  Something about them really appeals to kids.  When my boys were little it was hard to come up with games that toddlers could play or relate to.  One game they loved to play we called baby bird – we would create a nest with a blanket and they would chirp and ask for worms – these little birds are just waiting to be snuggled in a nest. Just waiting to be tossed in the air or juggled!  They also work as pattern weights – super fun to line up on the window sill in the sewing room or stitch up for a friend.
