Make a baby bean bag
Home-Dzine - Baby bean bags or bean chairs are making news around the world. Not only are baby bean bags a practical and comfy way to have your baby by your side, the built-in strap ensures that baby is safe at all times. We even managed to find instructions on how to make a baby bean bag.
What's really nice about these baby bean bags is that they can be recovered and repurposed as seating as your baby grows up. Bean bags are great as occasional seating for kids rooms, or for a family room or den. The bags retail online at around R500, but you can easily make your own baby bean bag for the cost of the fabric and filling. Shop for polystyrene beads, or fill with fibre stuffing.
Designed to envelop your baby in a comfortable position, you can pop baby onto the baby bean bag and let them sleep close to you in and around the home. The harness is designed to hold baby in place, so that they don't roll off when sleeping.
If you want to make your own baby bean bag you will find instructions here in both metric and imperial measurements.
You will find the nylon straps and clips for a baby bean bag at larger fabric stores that specialise in upholstery products. Alternatively, substitute with rings or tie straps to secure your baby.
