How to Make an Amazing Easy Bean Bag Chair

How to Make an Amazing Easy Bean Bag Chair | El tutorial más fácil para hacer un sillón puff | Live Colorful

I’m excited to share a new project created in collaboration with Digital Fabrics. It’s an amazing simple DIY tutorial to make a bean bag chair using 2 meters of heavyweight fabric (147 cm wide). I used one of my favorites designs from the LIVE COLORFUL collection, named cheery.

I was inspired by a simple tutorial that I found in Pinterest. I used the idea, but added some fun curves to make it look more organic. It was such a fun project and so easy to make!

MATERIAL:

  1. 2 meters of heavyweight fabric. I used waratah drill (147 cm wide). Design: Cheery.
  2. 2 packs of bean bag chair refill (100 Liter refill bags) (affiliate link)
  3. Sewing machine
  4. Thread
  5. Scissors
  6. Pins

STEPS:

  1. Fold the fabric and measure approximately 30 cm on one side of the fabric. Cut a curve.
  2. Fold the fabric in half lengthwise again. Measure approximately 15 cm on one side of the fabric. Cut a small curve.
  3. When you unfold your fabric, it should look like this.
  4. Then fold the fabric again, but backwards and add a few pins to keep the fabric in place.
  5. It’s time to start sewing!
  6. First, sew those two sides of the bean bag and leave an opening of about 20 cm to be able to fill the bean bag later.
  7. Fold the fabric again, so you can see the front of the bean bag. Add pins and sew to close the bean bag.
  8. Use a zigzag stitch to sew along the raw edge of your hem.
  9. Turn the fabric inside out and start filling the bean bag!
  10. Hand sew the bean bag closed.

Tip:

You can make a bean bag liner using the same tutorial so you can wash the bean bag later 😉

    Hi, I have bought 2m of gorgeous fabric to make this, however I have realised it is only 110cm wide :( anything I can do to compensate? So gutted. Fabric is Japanese linen

    Are you sure your measurements are correct or are you just guessing? I tried this and it’s totally off

    So, I made this bean bag from the Pinterest page. I had so much trouble putting the zipper in! Smart of you to skip it! I, did however, make an inner bag for the beans so the main cover can be cleaned as needed.
