How To Make A Bean Bag

Kids bean bag chairs are among the greatest inventions lately. Along with being among the simplest crafts to perform, they are also affordable and can be made in only a couple of hours. DIY beanbags are also a excellent affordable craft project that are excellent for kids learning how to sew, and as a unique gift to offer. This is how to make a bean bag:

First you’ll need to gather up all your bean bag stuffing, batting, clear wax, and yarn. Once each of these things are gathered, the next step is to secure the batting in place, this will make sure that all sides of this tote remain square and won’t open up while the gliding is indoors. Next you may wish to secure the clear wax in addition to the legumes, this will help the wax to keep its shape.

Once all of the batting is in place, it’s time to pull on the bean bag apart. You will use the pin to pull every side of this bag aside in a 45 degree angle. The upper edge will be where you’re likely to start sewing. Then you’ll pin the inner border of the batting into the pinched place, then sew the two edges together. Once you stitch the interior border, then you’ll turn the bag right side out and start sewing the outside borders.

In the event you decide to sew some thin strips into the bottom of your bean bags, you should pin them together prior to stitching. Sewing strips to the base saves you a whole lot of time, since rather than sewn strips, you can just sew a straight line. A straight line makes it significantly easier to sew using a heavier-weight cloth. In case you decide to purchase a heavy-weight cloth, such as silk or cotton, it is going to make the project so much easier since you won’t need to manage the awkward majority that comes from utilizing heavy-weight fabrics.

Once you have completed all the stitches, you will then need to carefully pull the zipper. The zipper will be positioned in the upper opening of the bag and will be matched with the opening in the base of the bag. Then you will want to align the zipper properly with all the opening, and then pull the zipper. Sew the zipper to the bag’s bottom seam allowances toward the exterior of the tote. The zipper will be pushed via the stitching which you have done, then it will be pulled tight.

Then, you are going to want to flip the bag right side out, and then cut along the zipper seam line. You will observe there is a slit in which the seam meets the bag. This is where you will sew the final strip of material along. Finally, you will want to push the surplus material, together with the surplus zipper, under the bag down. This will help you avoid using a bag that’s too full when you are finished.
