My son just bought a corn husk game and when he brought it home one of the set of bean bags were not there so I am going to make him a set in some outdoor fabric. These are so easy and very quick to make. all you need to do is sew the bag, leave a small hole to fill the beans or pellets and sew ole closed and done. I would rather make my own so you can use color of fabric of your choice or how about getting real clever and pick up a plastic table cloth from the dollar store and cut to use that for fabric. So let's get sewing some.
