or, How To Make Stand-Up Beanbags
Years ago, I bought this Disney flannel-backed satin with plans to make something for Emily. It stayed in my stash until this year, when Kate became enamored with all things pwincess. I thought I'd finally dig it out and turn it into Prettyrella* beanbags.
It was a very quick project - cut each princess out, with generous seam allowance and identical backing pieces from leftover satin:
Then sew on bases in stiff, robust duckcloth
turn right side out, stuff with polyfill and poly beads
and we get stand-up beanbags. At about 5" high,
they are soft enough to cuddle with in bed, and
sturdy enough to stand up and enact the latest
daring pwincess wescue adventures.
