How to Make a Stuffed Animal Bean Bag Chair
Now that we have convinced you that this is indeed a good and practical thing to have around, we will guide you through the entire process of making a bean bag chair, step by step.
Step 1: Gather All the Items
There are a few items you will need to do this, and it is very likely that you already have most of it at your house. First of all, this chair requires two types of fabric – upholstery fabric and fabric scrap. Then, you will need Velcro, foam/batting, a sewing machine, and scissors.
Step 2: Cut and Size
Cut your fabric according to it what size chair you want to make. Make sure to cut both types of fabric in the same dimensions and in rectangles.
Step 3: Layer up
Place one side of the upholstery fabric over the fabric scrap and use pins to keep these layers together without any movement.
Step 4: Sew
The seam allowance of a sewing pattern is just the area between the edge of the cloth and the stitching line. Use a somewhat less wide seam allowance to sew along the length of the fabric.
After you’re done with the first round of sewing, go back on the long side again and finally, sew the rest of the edges that are still rough. Sew all the sides except one because the foam will be put inside through that hole.
Step 5: Foam
Now it is time to add the foam to the fabric combination. You can do this by pushing the foam inside the one opening in between the fabric that you left unsewn.
Step 6: Sew Again
This time, you can sew the opening through which you put the foam. Merge the fabric scrap and upholstery fabric together for a fine all-around product. We highly recommend that you do all the sewing on a table.
Step 7: Finish with a Hem
In case you don’t know how to hem, do not worry because it is quite an easy task. Fold-down almost an inch of the fabric and sew all the way across it. It is important for you to keep your patience for this step because it can take some trial and error before you get it right.
Step 8: Attach Velcro
Attach one side of the Velcro alongside the hem and the other side of the Velcro on the opposite side of the hem.
Step 9: Start Stuffing
Gather all of the stuffed toys and start putting it all inside the newly made bean bag chair. Fill it up as much as you want and clear the space.
Step 10: Seal and Enjoy!
Lastly, seal it with Velcro. Now you can sit back and relax on this new chair in your clean room.
