What you need:
1 yard white canvas
One 4 lb. bag White Navy Beans
Two 1/2 yards of two different fabrics for the bean bags
Bias Tape home made or store bought
Let's get started!
Cut your canvas so it measures 36" X 36"
Using one long piece of tape, lay masking tape 1/2" away from the fold line on both sides. This will give you a 1" paint line. Make sure to press and smooth edges of the tape REALLY well so you will not have bleeding like I did in the lower left. :) oops! Set the mat aside and let dry.
Grab your fabric for the bean bags.
You are going to need (10) bean bags (5) of each fabric. Cut each piece into 12 1/2" x 6 1/4" rectangles. Fold each in half with right sides together, stitch sides using a zig-zag stitch, leaving a small hole to turn.
After turning right side out fill each bag with 1 cup of beans.
Tuck opening in and close using a strait stitch. Continue all the way around the bean bag sealing the beans from coming out and creating and nice finished edge.
Grab your mat and bias tape. Pin all the way around and then bast using a strait stitch.
