Bean bag fun!!

I made some fun bean bags! I have a ton of fabric, so I just used what I had and grabbed a bag of beans (that was a big decision in the bean aisle). I cut the fabric into 5 1/5 X 8 1/2 inch rectangles and folded the rectangle wrong sides together and zipped 2 sides of it through the sewing machine, turned them right side out, then filled them up with 3/4 of a cup of dried navy beans and folded the open end inwards and sewed that side with the machine. THE KIDS LOVE THEM! My son wanted to take them to bed with him last night. It took me a little over an hour to make all 10 of them. Such fun!
