Animal, Vegetable... or Furniture?

Three-and-a-half yards of faux fur clumped together in its finished state. Looks more like something that needs to be fed raw beef, or a deflated Tribble with a thyroid deficiency.

In addition, four yards of a cotton/poly blackout fabric. Two days later (l. to r.) the outer and inner bags for a bean bag chair.

I thought I would be organic and fill the bean bag with a natural product. So instead of the suggested poly pellets for the filling, I chose to use buckwheat hulls. I searched the web, found a great website for the product, and ordered what I needed for the cubic-foot requirement. So I ordered 50 pounds of buckwheat hulls, not thinking that 50 pounds is 50 pounds, and that the bean bag would weight 50+ pounds including the faux fur.

Once filled, it was a lot more compact than I though, and I instantly knew if I had a dog, this is what it would look like.

  1. 1) This bean bag is extremely comfortable - I know firsthand!
    2) If you had a dog - you wouldn't have a bean bag left! =)
