I used this tutorialto make three sets of counting bean bags as Xmas gifts for the small ones in the family: 



It's a great, simple project that uses up tons of scraps. 

My only adjustment to the tutorial would be to omit the zig-zag stitch around the numbers.  I think the wonder-under is stuck on there pretty tight (so it doesn't need extra stitching), and I thought that the zig-zag stitch made it a little harder to read the numbers.

Also, I accidentally did them from zero to 9 instead of 1 to 10, which could be either really confusing or very educational for the kids playing with them--not sure!  I'll probably do that differently next time, too.    Smiley

Here's another shot of the showing some of the back fabrics:

This one inspired me to spend 2 hours of cutting paper numbers, cutting cardboard numbers (my hand... aaahhh.. my hand!!) and cutting fabric numbers. I'm still missing #6, 9 and 8, since I don't have that much different fabric. There aren't any little children around here, and my mom doesn't really appreciate my creative drive ... so I really dunno what to do with that stuff when it's finished.
But I think it's a great idea, since it's a lot of fun and takes you back into kindergarten times, somehow. Thank you very much for this! Cheesy

I guess my bean bags will take some time, since I'm really busy studying atm. But I made some of the numbers already.  Cheesy
