Although the name implies that the bag is filled with beans, it’s actually filled with polystyrene pellets, making the chair light-weight and moldable. For added durability, the bean-bag chair consists of a muslin inner lining that holds the pellets, and an outer cover.
The outer cover is also zippered, making it easy to remove for laundering or dry cleaning. Note that more may be needed depending on the size of your bag. Other suggested filler to use would be packing peanuts. Then, using the scaled pattern for reference, draw the outer (cutting) line of the pattern.To make a pattern for the top of the bean-bag chair, fold a piece of paper in half; mark a point approximately half-way down the folded edge. Cut along this line and discard the smaller side of the circle. The remaining piece is the pattern for the bottom of the chair. Fold paper in half; make a mark approximately half-way down fold. Using ruler and pencil, draw arc on paper measuring from the marked point out the indicated distance. Cut on drawn line and unfold paper for top pattern.
Cut on this line, and discard smaller side of circle. The remaining piece is pattern for bottom of chair. Pin chair bottom pieces, right sides together, matching straight edges. Center zipper right side down over seam allowances, with zipper teeth on seam line. Using a zipper foot, stitch down each side of zipper tape 1⁄4" (6mm) from zipper teeth. Press seam allowances to one side, pressing all in same direction. Topstitch 3/8" (1 cm) from seams catching both seam allowances. Stitch remaining seam, press seam allowances to one side, and topstitch. Divide and mark the outer edge of bean-bag top into six equal parts, and pin to the upper edge of bag, right sides together, matching seams of sides to marks on top. Repeat steps 8 and 9 for the bag bottom, leaving zipper partially opened. Turn bag right side out through the zipper opening. Repeat steps 4 through 11 for inner lining. Insert the lining into outer cover and fill the bag with polystyrene pellets.
