Dave made this bean bag last year, out of several pair of jeans, which he had stashed away from when he used to make bags out of them. He used this tutorial for the beanbag pattern. We bought two giant bags of beans, and stuffed it as full as we could, leaving some of the second bag left over but by the time the pictures were taken it’s gone down in size quite a lot, so I wish we’d kept the leftover beans to top it up. Oh well, it’s still awesome!

    That is so cool, you could definitely make money selling those, if you were so inclined. Saying that though, I was thinking the same thing about the horse floor cushion I made but it was so much work that I wouldn’t contemplate it now!

      Thanks! We’re over making stuff to sell, there’s not even enough time for all the crafts we want to do for ourselves!

    Wow, that looks so professional and comfortable. Really inspiring to see old denim recycled. Thanks for sharing.
