My Creative Space - Mini Bean Bags



Did you have these at school when you were a kid? I have vague memories of them but saw them about the web last week and *bing* - the perfect way to use our Moda Pillow scraps! They are just charm squares filled with split peas from the supermarket.



Anya delighted in filling them with me - thank goodness for the funnel and vacuum cleaners I say! We have been practising our throwing and catching, balancing on our heads and even Josiah is enjoying playing with them. For more fun join in here.

Hey, good use of scraps! I was just in a discussion on another blog about what to do with scraps. A woman there had made a scrap quilt -- scrap quilt my butt, it was GORGEOUS! I might share your bean bags idea with them.

I can confirm, that although we had bean bags at school an infinity ago, they looked NOTHING like yours. Unfortunately.
