Bean Bag Chair Tutorial (Now for the grownups!)

adult sized beanbag

*Sigh* This is perhaps the most beautiful thing I have ever made. (eta: Thinking that sounded pretty braggy. Not trying to be braggy....it's the fabric...the pretty fabric!!!) Now you can make one too. The tutorial is here. Action shots of Laura Gunn and her cuties sitting upon it (and the kids sized versions) are here. To see the entire fabric collection, go here.

Where is the best place to purchase the recycled polystyrene pellets?

I've been meaning to tell you Thank You!! I used your bean bag tutorial as a guide for making a slipcover for a HUGE beanbag chair I already had. It came out super cute. Your tutorial gave me a visual of what I needed to do and I modified from there. Such a relief to not have to think it through 100% on my own.

Not braggy at all--don't worry. Great job.

I totally love this! Best looking beanbag chair I have EVER seen. Wondering the possibility of making it myself, but not holding my breath...

I am wondering where you bought your filler and liner. I'd love to be able to do this. Thanks!

Love the bean bag chair tutorial. My brother wants one so I'm thrilled to see some instructions for making one.

Hi, is it o.k to just use calico or light cotton to make the lining? Just trying to find a way to make it a little cheaper since you wont actually see the lining. Thanks!
