Bean Bag

Isn't this adorable? My little girl designed and made her own bean bag yesterday. She decided to decorate it with a Little Owl called Plop, who they have been reading about in school. She filled her bean bag with some out of date rice I keep for such things and also a handful of lavender so that when you throw and catch the beanbag, the smell is delightful. This was also her first experience of using the sewing machine with my help.

(The old singer is great for learning on. You can go at your own pace and not risk sewing your fingers as much as on an electric machine.)


  1. Season's Greetings! These little beanbags are adorable. My granddaughter is nearly 4 and would love to make one.

  2. so lovely, I like her drawing very much, also the way she colored it in and wrote. something to cherish for a long time.

  3. Oh, that's wonderful. I've been wanting to make some of these with my boys. I'm just not sure if I have a sturdy enough fabric for it.

  4. Beautiful! I recognised Jill Tomlinson's Plop straight away! Happy New Year!
