I found a similar pattern for a bean bag chair here and decided I would do the adult size for Ellie and Jared so it would be something they could 'grow into' as they got older.
I took the kids to the fabric store and they each chose a nice soft fleece in their favorite design and color. My husband graphed the pattern onto cardboard and away we went cutting the pieces and assembling the bags.
Once we got started it really didn't take too long. The kids each took their turn at the sewing machine and that was a lot of fun watching them concentrate and have fun.
Once the lining and outer shell were complete, we sent them to the packing experts to be filled.
Using a special filling designed just for bean bag chairs (not packing peanuts) they were filled up and zipped up and then immediately plopped down into by two adorable and very thankful kids!
I hope they'll be used and loved for many years to come!
