DIY Ugi Ball & Sandbag
- 1 1/2 yds. vinyl
- 16" zipper
- thread to match fabric
- needle or sewing machine (which makes it sooo much easier)
- 2 bags of polyester fiberfill
- old t-shirts
- bags of rice
- duct tape
First you will need to cut out 6 eyelet-shaped pieces:
Next, I bought 3 5lb. bags of white rice & duct taped them together then wrapped a few old shirts around them. I emptied one full bag of the fiberfill and stuffed it inside my bag, laid the rice on top then stuffed the remaining fiberfill inside. You will probably need to adjust the filling a little to make sure your bag is balanced. Zip up your bag & you're ready to go!
There is an ugi ball pattern on the Bodyrock webiste:
I found a pattern for a DIY sandbag here:
I'll be making my own sandbag in the near future and will definitely share the results!
