Aromatherapy Bean Bags

We all had so much fun making Christmas gifts this year, that Hannah decided that she wanted to make handmade gifts for Valentine's Day as well.

So for Rebekah she wanted to make bean bags. And not just any bean bags, but aromatherapy bean bags. I took her to the local quilt shop and she picked out the gorgeous fabrics. Together we cut and pinned . . .

sewed and stuffed . . .

And Rebekah just loves her lavender bean bags (she calls them sleeping bags - It's just too cute)They are actually a huge hit with everyone who picks one up. The fragrance is subtle and warmly surrounds you the more you toss and squish and play.

We are planning on making more with other scents. So a question for you all - What scent would you like to see in a bean bag?


  1. Wow, you are so creative! I am a mom that homeschools as well, but I am not nearly as handy as you are. Maybe someday..or maybe never. Anyway, great stuff!

  2. wonderful, love those fabrics.
    Lemon would be a great smell too.

  3. We've made some of these and they are so lovely! Thanks for sharing!

  4. we just love bean bags and adding fragrance is so appealing to me. Nice fabrics as well ;-)

  5. My fav is lemon balm... love it's freshness.
    Gorgeous 'sleeping bags'.
    Thanks so much for sharing on Friday's Nature Table.
    Blessings and magic.
