Filler for the seat-bag: frameless furniture with your own hands
Armchair-bag is quite convenient and practicala piece of home furniture that saves space. Another of its features is that it can transform and take any shape depending on the position of the seated, which is very convenient. That is why many designers began to make wide use of this option. But, unfortunately, not everyone can afford it, because these seemingly simple chairs are expensive. But do not get upset, you can always learn to do frameless furniture with your own hands. For the realization of a dream, we only need two kinds of fabric (one on the outer cover, the other on the inside), scissors, lightning, threads, pencil, ruler, large drawing paper, filler for the bag chair, well, and of course, a little savvy and fantasy.
Which fabric is best to choose?
As we have already explained, we need to sew twocover. For the inner, it is best to use a strong fabric, for example, plashevku, coarse calico or satin, but suede, leatherette, jeans, velvet, as well as a variety of furniture fabrics for the exterior. If funds permit, you can sew several different covers and periodically change them. Thus, the chair-bag will not bother you, and so much more interesting: you can choose the coloring depending on your mood. And one more nuance: if you have a small child, it is best to choose a fabric that will be well cleaned. After all, in this case, most likely, you will not be immune from spills of juice, drawing with colors, etc.
How to cut?
If you are an experienced seamstress, then the pattern of a bag chairyou do not have to enter into a stupor. But beginners are best to start with simple forms: sausages, padded stools, bananas. When you have everything, you can safely move on to more complex figures: drops and pears. To begin with, of course, it's worth drawing a small pattern on paper and trying to fold it. If everything converges, then you can boldly increase it to real size and transfer it to fabric.
What thread to use?
Inside the cover, there is usually a fillerfor the seat-bag, which is quite strong pressure, so that the seams should be very strong. Cotton thread immediately push aside, only reinforced ones that are able to withstand a high load are suitable here.
What kind of filler for a bag chair is it?
The most common is expanded polystyrene,in other words, foam. Such filler is absolutely safe, hygienic, does not absorb moisture, and it never gets clicks and different bacteria. Styrofoam keeps the heat very well, so this chair certainly will not be cold. Filler for the seat-bag can be bought in supermarkets, construction companies and furniture companies. Pay special attention to the size of the balls: they should be 4-5 mm in diameter.
A few recommendations
In the ready-made bag chair, the filler should be coveredonly 2/3. Otherwise, you will not get the desired plasticity and lightness. Polyfoam is highly electrified, so you may have some difficulties in filling the product. The usual plastic bottle, or rather, its upper part (it will have to be cut off) will come to the rescue. The package with filler is sealed, you will only have to make a small incision on it. Now glue the top part of the bottle to the opened place of packing. Thus, we have a package "with a neck" from which it is easy and easy to fill the required amount of filler.
