The beanbag chair is the squeak of furniture fashion.
So how can you sew a chair bag yourself"
Cut out six wedges (FIG. # 2), the upper hex and the lower hex (two-piece), from the lining fabric (for the inner cover) and denser (for the outer).
Tip: For the lining fabric, it is better to use a sliding fabric, so the bag will better conform to the shape of the sitting one. For the outer cover, use heavyweight fabrics that will resist abrasion and washable.
We fold two wedges with the front side inward, make a basting, top and bottom stitch 15 cm each (when using 100 cm. Zippers). We outline the zipper, sew it on.
Tip: do not use smaller zippers, as later it will be difficult to remove the outer cover from the bag.
Sew the next seam, iron it on one side, sew the remaining wedges in the same way, except for the last one.
On the front side, we make a 1 cm stitch along each seam, be sure to grab the smoothed allowances. Sew the last seam.
Sew the top and bottom of the bag in the same way.
We sew the inner cover in the same way.
We fill the inner cover with filler (polystyrene granules) for 2/3 of the pear armchair volume. Be careful! Do not let the granules enter the respiratory tract! If the granules do get inside, see a doctor immediately!
Tip: It is better to fill the cover with a paper bag or through a tube that can be folded from a Whatman paper, because paper does not generate static electricity and granules do not adhere to it.
Do not use "light" granules of large diameter, they quickly lose their shape and emit a barely audible rustle. Do not use foam "crumb", although it costs several times cheaper, but it is obtained by crushing old foam containers in which anything could be stored (mostly containers from fresh frozen fish).
Use only high-quality filler from trusted manufacturers.
