Bean bag chairs are a, seemingly, faddish idea that have stood the test of time. Their popularity continues today, especially with families who play video games. They are comfortable, portable, and loved by children and adults alike. Follow the steps in this article to give your bean bag chair a face-lift with a new cover.
Things You'll Need
- Measuring tape Fabric Velcro tape Sewing machine
Measuring and cutting the fabric
Measure the front, back, and sides of the bean bag chair. To make a top and bottom for the chair, cut out two pieces of fabric; before you cut, add 1 inch to all of the edges of the fabric for sewing the pieces together.
With right sides together, sew the top and bottom pieces together with a 7/8 inch seam on 3 of the edges. Leave one side open for inserting the bean bag. Sew a strip of Velcro on both the top and bottom opening of the remaining side.
Place the bean bag inside the cover and close it by pressing the two Velcro strips together.
Tips & Warnings
- Use a microfiber fabric or a fabric that is stain and spill resistant.
