My husband and I got married just before our senior year of college. We were poor. So so poor. We were living on love and prayer. Not a bad way to live actually but it means you don't have a ton of stuff.
To solve a seating issue, I decided to make a bean bag chair. It's pretty massive. I used old jeans cut small squares and sewed those into 6 large squares. The bag is actually one big cube. At one of the big seams I used the zippers from the jeans for an opening. Into the opening I shoved an old down comforter I wasn't using and cut up my mattress pad from sleeping on those crappy college room beds all those years for the stuffing. Free, comfy seating. It was great.
Here it is -
(It's seen much better days. You can tell it's had many years of use.)
You can imagine my shock when I heard it giggling the other day. What in the world?!?
This thing is so old it grew a kid!
John thinks it's time to sew up the holes. I think it's time to say good bye and buy some actual furniture. Maggie thinks it's perfect just the way it is.
