After several intense minutes of searching online for an Angry Birds bean bag chair, I realized that this product does not exist. If I want to get my hands on such a bean bag, I am going to have to get creative. As we all know, HotBeanBags.com creates custom bean bag chairs with fabric provided by customers, thanks to the genius mind of its brilliant proprietor (full disclosure for all you newbs out there, that handsome devil is me). So now all I have to do is find some Angry Birds fabric to create my one-of-a-kind bean bag. Well, after another session of extensive research, turns out Angry Bird fabric is non-existent as well. Strike two! But wait, what did I happen to stumble across on this seemingly unfruitful search for fabric??? a shower curtain from Bed Bath & Beyond, printed end-to-end with those loveable Angry Birds! Turns out the 72″ x 72″ fabric will work perfectly for the custom fabric bean bag chair. Things are finally coming together. So a trip to Bed Bath & Beyond later and the curtain/fabric is on its way to the bean bag factory!
Here is the product from Bed Bath & Beyond:
This is a full size view of the fabric. The fabric was a bit thinner than I expected, but I think it will still make a good bean bag chair.
I will update this post with pictures as soon as the chair arrives.

The chair turned out AWESOME! My only minor complaint is that it appears to be slightly smaller than the typical 30″ diameter bean bags, but I sort of expected that. They had to make the bean bag slightly smaller because the shape of the curtain and orientation of the graphics reduce the usable fabric area. The curtain from Bed Bath & Beyond was about $25 and the fee from HotBeanBags to make the custom bean bag was $95 (including shipping). Bottomline: My custom fabric bean bag looks awesome and I will probably do this again if I find another cool fabric shower curtain!
