Little miss munchkin spends most of her time on the floor, either playing with her toys, solving puzzles or simply watching her favorite TV shows. While our floors are pretty warm all year round, I simply cannot make peace with her laying on the floor so I thought I should make a nice chair for her. This bean bag sewing tutorial was sooo easy and quick I wanted to make one for us too and this will definitely happen soon, once I find the right fabric to match my home decor. And yes, I know she’s wearing her bean bag the other way around but by all means, you try and convince her she’s wrong!
My local store doesn’t hold very sturdy fabrics, like upholstery fabric or canvas so I had to settle for jeans fabric. This one wasn’t sturdy enough either but was the best I could find. If you can find canvas or upholstery fabric, best use those, your bean bag will be sturdier and will definitely resist the test of time (in which case you might need these tips on sewing with canvas).
I’m also not crazy about the colors, I wanted something more colorful, with a flowery print or at least some butterflies which would be a better fit for a girl Ellie’s age. But for now, light pink and gray it is!
