counting bean bags

for my daughter's buddy "N," who is turning 3. these were a really fun project, and i hope they help the little smarty pants learn his numbers (but if he just has fun with the bean bags, that's great too!). as you can see in the photo, my daughter was itching to play with them - a good sign, i think.

 

the colors were fun to pick (got away from my usual go-to blue/green combo), and i think this project even made me enjoy hand sewing! the fabric used for the number is what's on the reverse side of each bean bag.

 

fabric: gray corduroy, kona cotton solids, various prints from my stash
