A few weeks ago I posted about my DIY Corn Hole Game that my hubby and I made. Today I want to show you guys how to make the bean bags for the game… Or should I say corn bags?? Although these might look like your average bean bag, they are actually filled with corn; hence the name “Corn Hole.”
At first I thought I would just use beans like a normal bean bag, but the hubby really wanted to make the game “regulation ready.” As he always says, “If your going to do something, do it right the first time!” Why does he have to be right?? I later found out that beans are more likely to break apart in the bag, and corn won’t. Looks like there is a method behind the madness!
If you missed my DIY Corn Hole post and you’re super confused about what I’m rambling on about, you can find that post here.
Alrighty, on to the tutorial!
These bean bags need to measure to 6×6 inches. Cut your fabric, leaving about a half inch extra fabric on each side. Turn your fabric inside-out and sew the sides of your bag leaving one side open. Turn your fabric back to where the pattern of the fabric is now showing. Poor 15.5 ounces of corn into your bag. I pre-measured my corn before I poured it into the bag. Fold under your fabric on the remaining open side and pin shut, then sew closed. And that’s it!
And here are the bags all finished up!
