Ok well first of all i do not have the pattern.
I searched and searched but couldnt find it myself either =(.So i took a juggling ball(same design as mr.sandbag) and drew round a panel to make my panel shape for the mr.sandbag.
Then I cut two of my panel shapes out of one colour and 2 from the other. Then i sewed a black edge of a panel to a gold edge of a panel then continued with all of them till the last side of the last panel.When you get half way on the last side tuck the bag through the hole so its now right side out. Fill your bag with rice(i prefer rice because it is good for stalls but doesnt leak out like sand) and then sew the last bit by folding in your material so the stiching cant be seen.
Hope i explained it so you can now make one
let me know how your bag turns out and feel free top ask more questions.
ps. I used velvet material for a mr.sandbag which seems to be the favourite material for this design.
