Sorry I don't have a picture for this step, I kept mine as a regular beanbag, and if I can edit this after it is published, I might make a second beanbag and make it a beanbag monster.

Step 3: Start to sew!

If you are making a monster you can either
a) sew the face on the inside and make the sides look neat or
b) Sew the face facing out and make the edges look a little messier
For chias or regular beanbags:
Sew three sides of the beanbag and then turn it inside out or leave it right side in if you want the outside edges to look messy.
