The Swanky Slip Cover for Bean Bag Chairs by Jennifer Neill is perfect for any playroom kids' bedroom. This beanbag slipcover pattern is easy to clean, and it's a fantastic way to personalize a beanbag chair!

Materials:

  • Brown craft paper
  • 2 pencils
  • 3 yards of fabric of your choice
  • Thread
  • Pins
  • Velcro (optional)

Instructions:

  1. I began by measuring for a pattern. Two 36 inch circles and one long strip measuring 110 x 12 inches:

  1. I cut a 36" circle from brown craft paper. I made a perfect circle by going old school and looping an 18 inch piece of string around two pencils. I held one pencil in place in the center and made a compass out of it, letting the outside pencil draw the circle.

  2. I needed a few pieces of fabric to make up the 110 inch length. Once I had a long strip, I turned right sides together and sewed the short ends, making a big loop:

  3. Next, pin then sew the edges of the first circle to the edges of the loop with right sides together. You will be sewing the edges of the looped 110" piece to the edges of the circle like this:

  4. Repeat with the bottom circle, leaving about an 18 inch gap un-sewn so you can slip your bean bag into the the cover. I found it easiest to pin the circle to the loop methodically to avoid a bunch of puckering at the end. I pinned it in quarters first then filled in the pins in each quarter, to help spread out the fabric evenly - making a pleat with any extra fabric.
     
  5. I stuffed the bean bag into the open side then whip stitched it closed. I had intended to use a Velcro closure but decided against it.

My experience with beanbags goes back to 1969. Hard to believe isn't it? Fabric that doesn't stretch is best because it doesn't put the strain on the stitching. If using fabric that stretches then use upholstery thread and stitch twice around. Kids love these but they use them like a trampoline. Your idea makes a wonderfully soft cover that everyone will love. I use this fabric for baby quilt backing and everyone loves it. Momforever
