PinSpiration: Alphabet Bean BagsThursday, February 02, 2012
I saw these adorable bean bags on Pinterest a while back and pinned them to my "Gift Ideas" board, all the while having my two nieces in mind. They are 2 1/2 and 4 1/2 years old, so I thought these would be perfect for them!
This was a super fun project, and definitely helped me brush up on my sewing skills. Simple, straight lines, but lots of practice! There were a lot of steps involved, and I had to do everything 56 times (each of the 26 letters of the alphabet, upper and lower case, plus two extra letters so my nieces could each learn to spell their names with the bean bags = 56 letters), but like I said, all simple stuff. All in all, I estimate this took about a week's worth of nap times, which is roughly 10-14 hours. I didn't really keep track. A great, fun project that will hopefully make for hours of fun and learning for the girls!
