Use It Or Loose It; Beanbags!
Albert Cuyp market in Amsterdam, and to my surprise Oscar LOVED them. He uses them, a lot. I have one in his bedroom and one in his play pen. So that was an unexpected hit. He likes to run and flop down on top of them. It's hilarious. If you have little kids, bean bags are fab. Sometimes he just sits and chills out for a few minutes in them.
work trip to Montreal back in 2010. So, their time had come to be fished out of the cupboard and put to use. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. Almost no fabric waste and voilà! Comfy seating for all. I have two adult bean bags in the living room, and one upstairs on a little coffee seat landing. Handy for then the family visit in a few month to meet baby Dash. If you're looking for the pattern, I roughly followed this one. I just didn't always make mine square; just to the size of the fabric. Also this blogger is using hers for storage of duvet's, etc., where as I made mine with a muslin/calico inner and filled that with Ez Fill Pearl Beads bean bag filler, from Bed Bath and Beyond. I made the inner bag so there would be no bean accidents and I could easily wash the covers if need be. I needed 6 bags of beans for the 5 bean bags. And very happy I made covers with separate bean bag fillers, as I can already see a trail of snot Oscar has lovingly left on one bag... bless him. Rascal.
