DIY Sand Bag - CHECKED

Yeahhhh.... I finished my sand bag. Doesn't it look awesome?


I found some diy pictures of the sand bag throughout the Internet - mainly on Lisa-Marie's (BodyRock host) facebook. I was not planning in sewing the sand  bag now since I do not think I am ready for it. My arms are very weak, plus I already get sore just by doing the BodyRock challenges without any weight.
However, I found a blue fabric - that I thought it would be perfect for the sand bag - while at the fabric store. 

Anyways, once I had the fabric might as well sew it.
Since the fabric was a deep navy blue I thought gray details would be better then black. And I loved the final results. 

Now I just have to sew a inner bag to put the actual sand on, and then it is ready to be use. I think I will leave the inner bag for another week though.

Next project will be a Ugi ball.

UPDATE: If you also want to sew your own sandbag. Check my sandbag tutorial.

  5. Hi Olivia,
    The instructions for the ugi ball, you can find at the bodyrock's website. If i am not mistaken at fitness tips - or something like that.
    As for the sandbag, I just found pictures on Lisa-Marie's facebook page.
    I was going to put a tutorial for the sandbag this weekend, but really did not had time. But I will put that up here pretty soon. :)

    Did you see any change in your body? I am really impress about the changes I noticed. Amazing.

  6. Hi Bruna,

    That is an amazing Sandbag.

    The homemade ugi ball was under Bodyrockers and is by Sara and it's here: http://www.bodyrock.tv/2011/09/20/home-made-ugi-ball/

    I also made a pattern for what I call an ugly ball you can find the images and info here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/41740772@N06/sets/72157627464091553/

  7. Chris,
    Thanks for stopping by.
    I actually found your ugly ball tutorial before I saw it at the bodyrock website. I am not sure which one I am going to ended up doing.
    Your ugly ball is definitely identical to the ugi ball, but I think Sara's version seems a little easier.
    Thanks for the tutorial by the way.

    I just posted the tutorial for the sandbag, if you are interested go check it out.

  8. Bruna,
    How much does this bag weigh total? Also, do you have a more elaborate template with exact measurements?
    Thanks,
