A few weeks ago I bought this blue and white octagonal trellis fabric to make a Bean bag for Will - or should I really say for me! You see I spend half the day lying all over the floor reading books, playing with toys, having Will rumble on top of me so I thought I might as well do it in style and comfort!
I managed to get the sewing machine out and finish the bean bag on Sunday night and then we went and bought the beans for it yesterday. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and I think Will is too!
I made the bean bag in a long rectangle shape rather than the normal bean bag shape as i needed it to be long enough to lie all over but I also gathered half way along one length so that it has a natural curve when you push all the beans to the bottom so that Will can use it as a chair too.
Here are some action shots!
So much fun! Oh and here are some bean bag tips a lady outside Kmart told me when I was walking out with my big bag of beans. She told me to fill the bean bag in the bath so the beans don't go everywhere (fantastic tip). And she said that if the bean bag does open and the beans come out then suck a stocking part way up your vacuum cleaner then vacuum them up and then you can take the stocking out with all the beans inside. Fingers crossed I won't need to try this last tip but nice to know in case.
I hope you all have a great Tuesday full of fun and excitement!
