1...I cut a length of hose about 5 inch long.
2...Sew one end on your sewing machine or by hand.
3...Turn inside out.
3...Fill with beans, but not too full. You want it squishy so that it will hold things securely.
4...Sew opening on your sewing machine or by hand.
Presto you are done in about 15 minutes or so.
Uses for the bags. When photographing my dolls I rest my camera on a few bags stacked on top of each other. The bags keep the camera steady, and I can easily and quickly reposition my camera for a different angle shot.This works much better for me then repositioning an awkward tripod.
On a small Lazy Susan I stack a few bags. Now I have a hands free seat for my doll to sit securely on while I wig her. I can feel comfortable that she is not going to fall off as I turn the Lazy Susan to check out the wigging process from all angles. It also makes for a quick place to stick the corsage pin I use as I style her hair.
If you can think of any other uses for the handy dandy beanbag helper please share them in the comment section.
