    For the bean bag, why didn’t you keep the bag of beanies tied, and in tact from the store, and merely cut a lower corner of the bag and simply pour them into the bag that way? Position the plastic bag into the cushion, cut the corner, and let them pour in? If it was a matter of holdig the bean bag open, with so much material, I would have tied the cushion bag loose ends to anything that was around, using furniture, door knobs, chairs, whatever would allow me to tie the bag ends and to keep it open, while I snipped the corner of the beanie bag, and simply poured them into the cushion.
