Bean Bag Frog Plushie

What you need

Green Felt
Corduroy or silk
Contrast fabric for belly
Plastic beads for filling
Wobbly eyes



Instructions

Start by printing off the pattern below and enlarging it to the size you would like your frog to be.

Frog Pattern

Cut 1 piece out for the top and 1 piece out for the bottom of the frog. The pattern is designed to work with a fold-down-the-middle.

With the right sides together, sew around your frog either on a sewing machine or hand sewing leaving a small section open for turning the right way and filling.

Stitch of glue on the eyes. If you don’t have wobble eyes you can use buttons or felt pieces.

Turn the frog the right side out using a pen or pencil to push out the arms and legs.

Using a funnel fill the frog with plastic filling beads and then using strong thread close the opening.

  1. This I believe is the same pattern I used as a kid.I really loved making these frogs and am going to start making them again!

  2. Thank you for the sweet idea! I didn’t have a printer so I drew my own frog pattern and used scrap felt and for the eyes I used buttons then filled it with rice! My friends little girl loved it!
