These whimsical bean bags were inspired by my daughter's circus themed bedroom, and her love of tossing things around! It is a great project for practicing color changes, as the pieces are small and colors are changed often. All of the pieces, except the Sectioned Ball, are made with the Basic Ball pattern. You can make them in an afternoon, and with a little ingenuity, you can make a bean bag toss game with any boxes or baskets you may have around the house.
This pattern was originally designed for Tangled Webzine. Since they are no longer producing the magazine, they have graciously allowed me to post the pattern, including their layout and photography.
