There are a lot of reasons why the lowly bean bag is still a popular piece of furniture
, even after all these years. They're comfortable (ergonomic, even), easy to clean, and low maintenance. They're portable, which makes them perfect for college students. They're also versatile and can be easily stored, then pulled out for quick seating. Finally, they sit low on the ground, perfect for watching TV or playing video games.
Bean bags are also inexpensive to buy, but even more so to make. By making your own bean bags, you also can create custom seating that matches your decor
perfectly. To make a bean bag, you'll need:
- a sewing machine
- 3.8 yards of fabric of your choice
- 3.8 yards of inexpensive fabric (for the inner bag)
- 50 cm zipper
- beanbag filling
