Homemade Bean Bag Chair




I posted here, all the way back in August, about the bean bag chairs I was making for the kids. I sewed the panels for one together and then decided to use the plastic bags from our many large grocery shopping trips to fill them. This week, finally, the first one was full enough to finish up.



The kids love it. It's just the right size for a couple preschoolers or perfect for an older child to sit in to read a book or watch tv.



 I like the idea of filling these bean bag chairs with plastic bags but it takes a long time to get enough bags to fill one, even though we do buy a lot of groceries. I think for the next one I'm going to enlist the help of local friends collecting the bags to fill it up.
