Sewing Crafts


Beanbags are great for target practice, a fun game of catch or for juggling high in the air, but the best part about beanbags is making them yourself! Follow these simple instructions on how to create your own beanbags.

What You'll Need:

  • 2/3 yard of fabric
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread
  • Stuffing materials such as dried beans, aquarium rocks, or small packing peanuts

How to Make Beanbags:

Step 1: Cut three 4x8-inch pieces of fabric. Fold them in half vertically to form a square. Sew two sides closed on each square of fabric.

Step 2: At the open end, fill the squares with stuffing materials. Make them heavy or light, depending on how you will use the beanbags.

Step 3: To make heavy bags, use aquarium rocks; to make light bags, use packing peanuts; to make medium-weight bags, use dried beans. Sew the last side closed.
