In this years family name drawing, I picked my 9 year old nephew. Not only is it a challenge for me to think of little boy gifts to make, but this beloved nephew of mine had only video game related items on his want list. I refuse to support such an expensive hobby 🙂 So I had to be creative.
I ran into a tutorial for this bean bag, and thought it would be the perfect gift for a boy who would like to do nothing but play video games. Okay, so I guess I am supporting it a little. It was really a lot of fun to make. I would have done a tutorial but this one was so good, it would have been pointless. You should check out Stardust Shoes for more amazing tutorials.
Small tip if you so desire to make one of these yourself. Don’t buy the bean bag pellets from Joann’s. You’ll spend about 100 bucks to fill it. I found a store in my area (called Shopko) and they sell bean bag covers and you buy the filler separate. The covers were way over priced, and of course it’s funner to make your own any way, right? The pellets were only $12 on sale for one bag, and that is all I needed.
Hopefully the rest of my Handmade Kids Christmas will be wrapped up soon, and I’ll show you the rest.
