    Nice bags! Are they felt? I double covered the cotton ones I made and they still have to have a stitch or two once in a while. "~(

    NO - NO - not to put in the microwave - these are made for a game that you play outside - you throw them - kind of like horseshoes - but you throw them on a wooden board thingy with a hole in it - and get points if it goes into the hole or how close it gets to the hole, etc.

    There are other kinds of bags with corn, rice, beans, etc. in them that you put in the microwave for aches and pains.

    Yes it's actually a bean bag game that you drink & play with a big group of friends. Kinda like washers but corn hole is popular around here & has taken the place of washers. It has 2 boards with a hole about the size of the bag & there are points scored for closest & for those that make it in. Board is real slick white enamel painted about 3 times so there are no rough spots. It's a game that can be played inside or out depending on if you have a basement & how much you trust your friends once they are drinking! The bags are made from duck cloth, all seams are double stitched & stuffed with corn.

    My cousins in Kentucky introduced me to this game. It's pretty big where they are. I'd put it in the same category as horseshoes.

    BTW, great corn hole bags, Izaquilter!

    Great game and lots of fun for all ages. Very popular in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and probably a lot of other places. Our family plays in NY. Of course we learned from family in Indiana. We always take it on vacation to the Outer Banks with us. Every one loves playing.

    Lolll! Geez, I have even played this game before when I lived in Michigan, but never knew that was what it was called. Either way, the little corn bags with the SIU on them look really really nice.
