Sugar Skull Beanbag Chair

Make this beanbag chair in adult size or shrink it down for the kiddos! Either way, someone in your family is going to love it!
I appliqued and stenciled a sugar skull on mine, but you could use a heavy duty printed fabric that matches your decor if you wanted. Up to you!
Watch how to make the beanbag and skull pillow here! There are links to everything I used and the patterns on the Mark Montano blog.
Of course you can switch out any product for your favorites, but these are mine! I found it was important to make a bladder (or insert) for the beanbag to keep the beans from getting everywhere if the zipper opens. I used scrap yardage that was about to be donated. Doesn't matter what it is.
Next to Julie so that you can see how big it is.
