Homemade Bean Bag Chair
Making your own beanbag chair might seen intimidating, but it’s actually a fun project! What kid (or adult) wouldn’t want their own bean bag chair? This bean bag pattern comes in two sizes! For kids or adults. You can make a liner/insert and fill it with bean bag pellets, or simply make the outer shell and fill the inside with stuffed animals! The stuffed animals are cozy and are an inexpensive filler, and it provides toy storage at the same time.
Bean Bag Chair Sewing Pattern
It took me about 2 hours to make the kid size chair and I foresee more in the future. The pattern is a free one from Stardust shoes. I did not create it or claim ownership of it. The original website is no longer around, but I still had a copy of the pdf pattern and instructions so I’m sharing it here. If I ever find that it is being hosted on their website again, I’ll link to the website.
