I am trying to do the handmade Christmas thing, but since I am a beginning sewer coming up with ideas that are cute AND that I can make can sometimes be a challenge.  Enter this tutorial http://createstudio.blogspot.com/2010/04/beanbag-numbers-tutorial.html to save the day!  Great practice and a cute and educational gift for my niece who will be two in February.  I'm really happy with them!  Oh, and I used navy beans, so they really are bean bags, heehee.  I'm thinking of making a little bag or something for them to go in.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to make to put them in? 

All the numbers lined up!

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!

These are great, might have to make some of these for my little ones for Christmas.

I think a draw string back pack would be great to store these. I made one for each of my girls and they are allowed to fill them with toys for holidays. Here is a tute that I just found, it's not the one that I used but is similar, hope it's easy to follow.

The easiest thing I can think of to make a bag out of is the bottom of a pants leg. You just cut it off at the height you want, turn inside out and sew it closed where you made the cut. Then you can run a string through the hem by cutting a small "V" shape on one or both seam sides (depending on how you want the drawstring to work, and there you have it! Super easy, and they require practically no equipment. Good luck!
