Bean Bag Chair

OMG I am SO excited to share this with you guys! I found this idea on Pinterest (of course) a few years ago and made a couple for my niece and nephew for their first Christmas and I have been obsessed ever since! I have made a total of 5 of these little beauties and I am working on number 6.

Now before you tell yourself you can’t do this, or this looks WAY too difficult, etc. I just want you to know that this project really isn’t that hard at all! It does have a LOT of steps to it, so it is pretty time-consuming, but the end result is so darling, I just can’t stop making them!

The file above includes the instructions and supplies for this project. It is SO well created that I feel like making a tutorial myself would simply be redundant. So I am just going to share a few pieces of advice from my experiences.

I think the hardest part of this project is finding 3 coordinating fabrics for the chairs. I can always find the first two SO easily but then it takes forever to find the third fabric choice. Once you do though, seriously, this project is not bad at all. The hardest parts to the actual assembling of the chairs is attaching the hook and loop closure and the appliques on the top and bottom and honestly, as long as you read and follow the instructions carefully, you’ll do great! I know you can do this!

BTW, the bean bag filler, the Popped Polystyrene Bean Bag Refill, can be rather difficult to find. I have purchased all of mine from Walmart.com, but you will want to give yourself enough time to find and order the filler if you are giving your chair as a gift.
