I’ve had a lot of fun making things for our American Girl Dolls this summer. Hope you have enjoyed seeing the sewing and other things I’ve done. Today, I’ve got a free pattern for you to make doll sized bean bag chairs(or perfect for Beanie Boos as well…which is what my girls are using them for even more than for their dolls). They are so cute and relatively easy to make as well. Yay!
Our school year was so different this year and it felt so much more busy than our homeschool schedule. It felt like my girls had less time to play together and less time to do things with their dolls. While my 13-year-old isn’t as thrilled as she once was to play with her dolls, it has been fun seeing she and her sister playing with them. They have both enjoyed the mattress and sheets I’ve made for their doll bunk beds. They also LOVE these bean bag chairs…though they seem to be used more for their Beanie Boos(affiliate link) than the dolls. Oh well…they are having fun and playing with them, that is what matters.
The funny thing is that I never really had thought of making them bean bag chairs for their dolls nor had they requested them. Last month when Fairfield sponsored the post I did on how to make a mattress for a doll bed, they also asked if I would want to give their bean bag filler a try. I immediately thought of how fun it would be to have bean bag chairs for the dolls. I told Fairfield, “Sure thing!” They sent me the bean bag filler and sponsored this post as well. Thanks Fairfield!
The bean bag chairs don’t require much fabric at all and a pretty quick and easy to sew together. Let me show you how. View full post »
