Great Craft Idea - Recycling old pillows and cases to make a recliner

I saw this really easy craft idea on Pinterest to make a floor lounger using 5 pillowcases and 5 pillows.  It was so simple, I had to try it.

I used 5 old pillow cases from the linen cabinet and 5 pillows that have passed their life on the bed.  There was 4 seams and the total make time was 20 minutes including ironing the pillowcases (who would normally).

The cost was nil but I think if you wanted to make one with new materials it would be a lot cheaper than buying a bean bag, plus all parts are washable and the pillows can be upgraded at any time.

This is the original - they make it look amazing with such nice pillowcases!
