I was THRILLED when they announced the latest project. Because it's one I felt reasonably confident I could participate in. Making educational beanbags for orphans in Liberia.
I did a set of bean bags with numbers:
I used aquarium gravel for the filler, and have TONS left. These are cotton with fabric paint using freezer paper to stencil on the numbers. Delilah likes them so I'll be making a set for her next.
It was so satisfying to work on a project like this. Check out Craft Hope. Participate in a project sometime, and I promise it will make you feel FABULOUS! The work done by participants in the projects is inspiring to check out. I just saw some of the other beanbags and they are completely adorable.
