Bean Bag Frenzy!

I have recently been introduced to Craft Hope (link on my side bar <----). They posted a new project today, and I've already started cutting!

They are making bean bags of colors, shapes, numbers and letters to send to Liberia! Please read their post for more of the requirements!

I'm taking 5.5 inch squares and embroider them (with my machine, no way I'm doing that by hand) with letters, sew two 5.5 squares right sides together (one plain, one with a letter) leaving a small opening to stuff with some non-food-bean-like substance (suggestions??) Hope you'll join me in helping!


Well, scratch plan one. My machine does not like to embroider the alphabet on my 5.5 inch squares. So I ran to hobby lobby and picked up some iron on transfers, which I will iron, then sew, they look better than mine would have any way...I hope this is still considered "hand made"...


  1. I signed up earlier this morning as well. This will be my 4th Craft Hope project, and I can't recommend them enough. I'm going to do a set of colors. Are you doing the alphabet?

  2. Yeah, at least one, maybe a set of numbers too we'll see :)
