This project is perfect for a beginner sewer to take her skills to the next level by inserting a zipper. Using leftover fabric scraps and polyester stuffing instead of the usual bean bag beans, it's also very affordable. Because the chair is just a rectangle, the size is easily adaptable for children or adults. Super easy to wash, too!

12 Sensory Bag DIYs to Improve Your Baby's Cognitive Skills

Which is why sensory bags are the greatest thing to hit the baby circuit: they’re super easy to make and provide hours of mess-free play. Try these #DIY tutorials.
Make a bean bag chair that’s as unique as your child. With just two pieces of fabric, a zipper, and a straight stitch, you can create a kid’s bean bag chair in just 30 minutes. It makes the perfect spot for lounging or curling up with a good book, and it’s just the right size for your little one.
