Five Handmade Alphabets that You Can Craft from Recycled, Upcycled, or Natural Materials

alphabet bean bags by Mama Michie's MusingsBean bags can serve any purpose from children’s toy to high decor, depending on how you stencil them. Alphabet bean bags, such as these in the alphabet bean bags tutorial from Mama Michie’s Musings, can feature even the most elaborate font, because freezer paper stenciling is one of the simplest and most effective embellishment techniques that you can learn.

For a top-stitched hem on all sides, apply the techniques from my stenciled bean bags tutorial.

To make this project, consider using organic cotton and organic dried beans or rice, or make an upcycled set using any type of repurposed fabric and any repurposed filler, such as beads or ball bearings.
