Personalized & Custom Patchwork Bean Bag

{OMG} {OMG} {OMG} This is so stinkin’ freakin’ fabulous!! Remember the {PINK & DAMASK CRIB SET} that I made? Well, my customer ordered a patchwork bean bag using some of the left over fabrics.  What a great idea, right?!  Especially with the personalization.  I want to make a million of these!  Definitely going to making a Texas A&M bean bag for my friend’s son.

I used Simplicity pattern, number 5105. I cut out the bean bag pattern using a heavy weight interfacing and then sewed the patchwork pieces to the interfacing.  I followed the pattern directions as given; except I added a zipper to the bottom piece of the bean bag.  Sewing the actual bean bag together was super easy; the patchwork was a little time consuming but totally worth it.  WARNING: If you buy this pattern- this bean bag is HUGE!! The bean bag wasn’t even full and we purchased (2) $15 bean bags from Walmart for the insides.  I was a little disappointed that the pattern didn’t tell me how much filling to buy.  For the next one, I am going to cut up the purchased bean bag and use it as my pattern since it is smaller.
