Make your own bean bag chair


Check out this cool bean bag chair by Joanna at Stardust Shoes. I never thought I’d say this about a bean bag chair, but I think this one is so fun. I wish I had one like it for Chloe’s room. She would totally dig it. Not only does she love to climb on chairs in general, but also to get in and out of boxes, bounce on cushions, and land in piles of dirty clothes on the floor. Wouldn’t playing with an oversize bean bag be like all those things?

Joanna offers both an adult-sized (shown above) and child-sized pdf tutorial, so technically I could make one myself. Maybe I will someday. Right now I’m stuck with a halfway finished spring top. I can’t seem to figure out the next step, and I’m not sure how best to move forward (Sandy, maybe I can ichat you and hold the instructions up to the camera?). Also strange is that I can’t find a single reference of anyone sewing this top, or any photos on Flickr or anywhere else. Maybe because it was written for teenagers and there aren’t any teenager-sewing-bloggers? Oh well. I might just try and wing it.

  1. That is seriously cute! I bought Henry a regular old denim-covered bean bag chair at a garage sale last year and he loves it. I think that Nora needs her own. I might have to add that to my to-sew list. I have a half cut-out pattern for a baby romper right now. That’s about all the sewing mojo I could muster. I’m knitting tonight but I think I’ll try for sewing again tomorrow. Good luck with the top!

  2. FUN! Ava has just a plain red one from target I would love to get some fun fabric and make a different cover. 1. get a sewing machine 2. learn to sew 3. bean bag cover… someday!
