I did get these bean bags finished and shipped off by the deadline (May 15th, I think it was) but I'm just now getting around to sharing them. Craft Hope's "Project 7" was (and maybe still is) making bean bags for the Liberia Orphan Education Project (LEOP). They requested bean bags with letters, numbers, shapes, or colors - I chose numbers.
At first I made bean bags for numbers 0-9. Then I decided to put a math spin on the project by making corresponding dot beanbags, some math symbols ( +, =, -) and some extra numbers. Observe:
I ended up with quite a few bean bags.
I fashioned a nice drawstring bag and stuffed them all in. Then I shipped them off to Craft Hope! Shipping costs were minimal, though, because they couldn't be stuffed with anything perishable because of customs, so I used polyester fiber fill - super light and fluffy! They're more like pillows than bean bags, actually!
