make something!

make these baby bean bags... 
every week E and i go to a mommy and me class. one of the activities is to shake a bean bag to a well known tune. little did i know that e liked it so much until she began to sing the song at home, shaking her hands sans beanbag. clearly, there was only one solution.
the inspiration for the shape comes from the grade school icees in the little waxed cardboard tubes. the tube was secured at the ends in opposite directions so as to maximize volume inside. i have always remembered the interesting shape of the icees. if only i could use that brain space to store more important things... like algebra.
