Rollie Pollie Bean Bag Chairs

Come check out my new blog at 


I made these wonderful bean bag chairs for my kids! (With some changes that are listed below.) 
I made the large size of Rollie Pollie for both bean bags.
My changes were . . .

1. I pieced several different fabrics together and then cut out the pattern pieces from what I had pieced.
I used scraps I had from reupholstering a couple of chairs and then did a few accent fabrics with it.

2. I only could find a 26" zipper. I'm not sure where she found her 30" zippers at.

3. I filled my bean bags with bean bag beads and then 1 large bag of regular stuffing (all mixed together). I added the bag of stuffing because I had it laying around the house and it kind of broke up the feel of laying on just bean bag beads. It made it feel more like a pillow, but not really enough to worry about it. This was a MUCH cheaper option! I think it only cost me about $16-$20 to fill each one, instead of the $45 she recommends.

These bean bag chairs were worth every penny! My kids love them and drag them from room to room.
FYI: The handles she recommends putting on are a must! Without them my kids (ages 3 and 18 months) would have a very difficult time moving them very far.

  1. These look great! How much bean bag fill did you end up needing? I'd like to make two as well, but I am trying to figure out how many bags of the filler to buy.

  2. Cute, i love how you pieced the fabric together for these. They turned out great!
