Ghost Beanbag Tutorial

 Do you need a quick and easy idea for a bean bag toss?

  •  a scrap of white  muslin 4″x12″ for each ghost
  • rice
  • permanent marker


fold fabric width in half and cut the folded side into a ghost shape.  only cut one edge.   sew around them with a ¼” seam allowance, leaving at least a 1″ opening in the bottom of each ghost.

 Turn the ghost right side out.  fill ½-¾ of the way with rice.  you don’t want them to be too fat! I used a funnel to put the rice in.

 sew the bottom seam with a zig-zag stitch twice to reinforce the seam.  you don’t want any rice to escape!   be careful to keep the rice away from the opening or it will break the needle 😉

 Draw funny faces on the ghosts with permanent marker.

 sit back and enjoy the fun your kids and grandkids have with these cute (and natural) bean bags!

I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.

    These are a great “trick or treat” idea which will not cost me anything but time and that old pillowcase I’ve got in my sewing stash. GREAT, thanks:)
