Bean Bags!

We have 2 weeks before my youngest sister Adrianne's bridal shower!  I am hosting this happy event at our new home!  I have been working feverishly to get things done since we just moved into the house in December.  I can't show you anything since I want my sister to be surprised!  Can't wait to share some of the projects! 
I did take time to make these adorable "Bean Bags" or at least that is what I call them.   I found Carolyn's tutorial on Pinterest here-
I love her little bags!  I did make my handles a little thicker- I used 1/2 inch and I added the strips from the handle down to the base strip.  I wanted them to look like a "Bean Bag".   You know- LL Bean's tote bags.  Carolyn's instruction are easy and fun to do!  The red bag was my first attempt so I made a few boo boos but the next ones came out much better. Carolyn put cards in them but I think I will put cello bags with candy in them and give them as gifts.   I love em! 


  1. These do look like LL Bean Bags!! Adorable and great for little favors with chocolate!! Thanks for the link!

  2. Hi Chris,

    Your little bags are adorable! I agree with Rochelle - they do look like L.L. Bean bags. I'm sure the bridal shower and projects you have created will be gorgeous! I can't wait to see it all.
