I came up with these Bean Bag Shooting Stars many years ago, but never got around to doing them. So I got to it. Yesterday there was a 25% sale off everything at Joann’s (which I didn’t even know about until I was standing in line with less than $20 worth of stuff). Anyway, I brought my eldest daughter with me to pick out the colors she wanted her stars to be. We ended up choosing 8 different colors. (Red, Pink, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Lavender, and White). We bought a single sheet of felt for each color. They were 38 cents each, and after the sale and coupons, they were 14 cents each. We then picked out some matching 1/8″ ribbons from the ribbon department. I bought each 10 yd roll for 50 cents each, but they ended up being a lot cheaper after the sales. I already had my thread, sewing machine, and a 2 lb bag of pinto beans that were hiding in the back of my pantry. So I was good to go. =)
Anyway, I will show you a quick photo step by step with short descriptions, since most of it is pretty self-explanatory. These aren’t by any means the most beautifully done (I’ve got a 3 year old and a 10 month old to tend to, so I had to make these quick — and my oldest is very curious about how my sewing machine works).
Here is everything step by step!
