Bean Bag Frog

This frog is just full of character and because he is filled with dried lentils (or filling of choice), you can arrange him in any position you like and he will remain that way? The pattern for this project was found in the book “Crab-Bags & Other Bean Beings” created by author Margaret Park. This book is now available as a free e-book and has not only this crab, but 5 other easy to sew charming animals. Here you will find the Bean Bag Crab which is also made using the patterns. Below you will find the link to the site where the book can be downloaded from.
