The Parent Club for my daughters' school is working on the Fall Carnival right now and I have been so busy with meetings and helping plan out game booths.
We cleaned out the Parent Club room to see what we have and what we need to get for booths.
There was a crate of beanbags that were in desperate need of repair that I saved from the trash pile.
Here they are:
Pile of ratty beanbags rescued from the trash pile
Do you see the staples? Yep, that's right. Staples. Gah!
After removing the staples from the beanbags, I found crushed beans and crumpled paper inside and decided that they needed to be redone completely.
I dumped out the contents into the trash, and then cut down the rectangles of fabric into a more square like shape. I wasn't trying to make them perfect, but anything was an improvement over their previous state! Hi, remember the staples?
I sewed them right sides together, turned them right side out through a 2 inch gap, filled with fresh dried pinto beans and top stitched for extra strength and added pretty:)
Isn't that better?
No chance of children getting cut with these now:) Yay!
Even though this fabric is obviously well worn,
I think these ones are adorable!
I am linking up with these crafty people:)
