I think I have instructions and pics on my PC at home I think, I'll take a look and post 'em if I got 'em.

Found them on the web somewhere a while ago.

Here's how I did some:

1) Find a decent tan fabric.

2) Decide how big you want you're finished sandbags, then measure and cut out the fabric in the width you want, and TWICE the length you want.

3) Fold in half length-wise.

4) Stitch up the two long sides. You should now basically have a sack, open at one end.

5) Turn the sack right-side-out, so the stitching you've done is on the inside.

6) Fill it with something. I used plastic filler pellets from a craft store, but some people use rice (uncooked, of course), or other material. I like the heavier weight of the pellets, myself.

7) Stitch up the open end.

8) Repeat 1-7 until you can dam up the Missouri river if you have to.
