Check out that stack of bean bags. This is what you get when you take my counting bean bags subtract the numbers and add the alphabet.
Spelling bean bags, people--or just a whole bunch of bean bags with letters on them if you do not care for spelling. Whatever the case, these came about because I was asked to do a new version of these for a book submission, but then the submission was passed up (happily, they accepted another submission I snuck in there--cannot share any details now though so do not even ask)--so even though it is a bit like re-gifting, you still get to be the lucky recipients of this reject project--all for the low, low price of clicking on the project link and downloading the tutorial. Hard to beat that. Get your copy right here, right now:
Of course, it does take a bit of time to make this set of bean bags--26 bean bags containing every letter of the alphabet is not for the applique-faint-of-heart. But, if you portion the project out over a couple of evenings instead of going all gonzo and attempting to do it all in one go--well, you may find it manageable, if not meditative.
Tell me these would not make a great gift for the elementary-school-spelling set. Oh, and this one set (and one set only) you see here is for sale in my little shop if you do not have the beanbag sewing fortitude to make your own--find it here. Happy spelling-bean-bag-making, people. And please, do not forget to share your creations in my Beeper Bebe project Flickr group--love to see what you guys get up to with my designs and how you make them your own.
