Bean Bag Chairs
I came across this GREAT tutorial from a blog called Trey and Lucy
She took a pattern and created bean bag chairs for her kids. I found my fabric at JoAnns for 50% off. You will need 6 yards of fabric for each bean bag chair. I made the inner bag with clearance fabric I found for $2/yd. I also was able to get the Velcro for 50% off and the beans were on sale at Smith's Marketplace for FREE (I had bought grocery's that gave me $35 in coupons on your next purchase)! Normally the beans are about $12/bag and you will need one bag for each chair.
All in all it cost about $20/bean bag to make (with the free beans, or $30 if you have to buy them). This can sound like a lot considering I saw some in Walmart for $15 but these are CUSTOM! You get to choose how much fill is in them, what color of fabric, etc. I love them!
