How To Make Your Own Cornhole Bags

The game of cornhole has taken the Midwest by storm and has started to spread throughout the country. The only real choice many people face is whether or not to buy a cornhole game set complete with cornhole bags, or to build and sew your own. The simplest of the two to make are the cornhole bags. Hopefully you will be able to sew your own after reading this.

A set of cornhole bags is made up of 8 bags. There are four bags per team. Each team must have a different color of bag. The bags are made of duck canvas. This is a breathable cloth that can be gotten wet several times and will dry out without much shrinking or wearing out of the cloth. Each bag must be 6″ X 6″ after it is sewed. It is probably best to start with two cloth squares that are 8″X8″. It is filled with cracked corn and must weigh between 14 and 16oz. The most durable way to sew them is to use a double stitch, some people use a triple stitch to add strength and longevity.

The material is easily found at your local department store of fabric center. Every thing else is just as easy to find. Hopefully, you will enjoy the sewing your own cornhole bags.
