Bag of Pinto Beans. . . Or A Pillow?

I'm so glad you stopped by! I have a quirky and fun project to share with you today.

It's a pillow- made from a pinto bean bag!

I got the bag for ten cents at a yard sale last year. No joke.
It's been folded up on a shelf since I bought it. Then I recently tried making a pillow and was so pleased with the results that I started looking around to see what else I could turn into a pillow. And I remembered this beautiful burlap bag.
So I dug through my ribbon collection and found this delightful blue pom-pom trim
and knew it was meant to be.

Now, let me tell you that I'm by no means a seamstress. I remember tips my mom has taught me over the years and bits and pieces from Home Ec. Lucky for me it doesn't take too much to sew two rectangles together!

If you like this project, you may want to take a look at another pillow I made.
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting, and
His truth endures to all generations.
Psalm 100:5
