April 2, 2013This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! Beanbag Animal Sew-A-Long Edition
by Betty Crafter
I decided it’s high time for another “Craft Along with Betty” segment! This time I’m making something out of 1972’s Better Homes and Gardens Gifts To Make Yourself.
I’m itching to make one of these felt beanbag animals. I had a hard time deciding between the purple hippo and the blue cow but in the end, that purple hippo with the adorable little flower on her forehead just couldn’t be denied! I’m especially excited about this project because the intro promises “These colorful beanbag animals are fun to watch, play with, and even toss in the air.”
Fun to watch?? Sign me up! I can’t wait to see what silly antics my silly hippo gets up to! What can I expect to see? Juggling? Stand up comedy? Musical theater?? You better not disappoint me hippo…
Anyhoo, for this project we’ll need:
* Purple, lavender, red, and white felt
* Green and yellow embroidery thread
* Black safety eyes or black embroidery thread
Gather your supplies and meet me back here next week to see if we can pull this thing off!
