I spent yesterday afternoon making these little beanbags to put inside the Easter goody box I'm sending out to my granddaughter Tatiana. One year when our budget was stretched beyond the stretching point, I made these to fill up the boys Easter baskets. With the addition of confetti eggs, they didn't notice how skimpy the goodies were.
Copy the above pattern and increase to the size you desire. Cut four of the body from the main color and two ears from the main color and two from a contrasting fabric. Sew two body pieces together from the smaller point (the fromt) to the back. Sew the other two pieces together. Join these two pieces together, leaving a two inch space unsewn for filling the beanbags. Sew the ear pieces together . Turn right side out and attach to the body. Embroider or paint on facial features. Fill the body with beans and sew shut.
Blow out eggs. Boil the empty shells to make sure they are clean. Decorate the eggs. Enlarge one of the blow holes enough to stuff the shells with confetti. Insert the confetti, filling well. Place a sticker over the hole.
These are a lot of fun for the kids to toss around outside. JUst make sure they play with them outside or you'll be vacuuming up confetti until next Easter!
