Last May I made my nephew Connor a Cars themed bean bag for his birthday. It was the first one I ever made, so it wasn't really my best piece of work. But, it was kind of fun to make. I collected old worn out bean bags at thrift stores and combined them to make a full bean bag. I stenciled several of the characters on each side with fabric paint using this technique and gave it to him for his birthday before I realized I never even got a picture of it.
It was quite a hit.
In fact, his father (my brother) Mike said he wanted one for his birthday. So, that started a little streak of everyone getting a bean bag for a gift. Mike's bean bag was almost twice the size and it was a KC Chiefs/KC Royals themed bean bag. Also another big hit.
Several bean bags later I finally have a picture to share. My nephew Charlie is a huge Thomas the Tank Engine fan, so I wanted to make a Thomas bean bag for him. I had the perfect fabric in mind for this project. I had several (just barely enough) scraps of blue and white engineer ticking stripe denim. Then I used iron on transfer paper to put Thomas and his friends on each side of the bag.
I think this one turned out pretty good...it is so far my favorite one I have made. But, something tells me I am not quite done making them.
