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 😉

The color palette was inspired by handcrafts I have found around Mexico and South America. The designs are all about making a statement and having fun. They are bold, simple and really playful.

All the designs can be printed on a big range of high-quality fabrics, such as chiffon, matte lycra, fleece, cotton linen, wattle and many other options for the fashion and home decor industry.

The prints are fun, bright and happy, and I think they are perfect for home decor DIY projects such as curtains, pillows, outdoor furniture, upholstery, bedding and things like that! You can find great tips about the characteristics of every fabric here so you can pick one that works for your project.

Easy DIY Curtains (VIDEO Tutorial) | Live Colorful

Curtains are a great way to add color and pattern to your home, and they are so easy to make!

When we moved, my baby was so little that I really didn’t want to work on many projects for the home, so I left the ugly gray-green curtains that were in the house when we moved for months. Until I started this fun collaboration with Digital Fabrics thanks to the recommendation a great friend, Jocelina Paixao from Pink Chocolate Break.

Digital Fabrics is an online fabric shop where you can design and print your own fabric. I have to say that my favorite part was their range of fabric that goes from chiffon, matte lycra, fleece, cotton linen, wattle and many other options for the fashion and home decor industry, and of course, the fact that you can create and print your own designs.

I knew that I wanted to make something for the home since I haven’t been able to find prints that I love. Inspired by that, I created LIVE COLORFUL collection with bright and happy prints that would look amazing for curtains, pillows, bean bags, upholstery, baskets and many other projects.
