The Beanbag of Awesomeness …

Late last year I bought a piece of cotton with a Japanese Animé print from Evie at Pendle Stitches.  It had my 7 yr old neice’s name all over it, I knew as soon as I saw it.  Japanese animation being something of a ‘special interest’ of hers 🙂

I finally got around to doing something with it this week, after procrastinating for far, far too long.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, I give you

The Beanbag of Awesomeness, so named by my neice, who seems rather pleased with it.

One side side is the print fabric purchased from Evie.

The reverse side is soft brown corduroy, embroidered with small coloured flower blossoms.

I finished the opening with 6 big yellow buttons for easy removal and washing/replacement of beans.

Not an especially skillful or challenging piece of work, but it made a small person very happy!

    Lovely! Like the button opening. I made a beanbag once and I got into a right mess with filling it with the beads – all over the place!

      Yes, I did have a bit of a time of it, chasing little electrically charged beads around the place and wondering why I’d ever thought this was a good idea! The reaction from my neice made it all worthwhile though.
