Replacement bean bag covers?

Do they exist?! I've got a bean bag with a faux suede cover, but the base of it is getting very torn and worn out after a decade of use. It seems a shame to chuck the whole thing, as the filling itself is still pretty perky and comfy.
Anyone know where replacement covers might be found, as a Google hasn't been massively helpful. Think I've got about cubic feet of beans to find a new home for...

Not very helpful - but I've made my own.
You could get upholstery material on line or even from Ikea ...and you'll need a long zip . If you don't have a machine maybe you could get someone to make one for you - a basic shaped one won't be difficult.
You could use your current cover as a template or make something completely different. And possible use the current one as a liner (less chance of beads escaping and easier to wash the outer cover without getting beds everywhere.
I bought DD1 a chair shaped one in nursery print heavily reduced because it was badly shop soiled (cost less than £10). I did try washing the original cover but it was still marked so I just used it as a template (then liner) and made one using cow print fur - she adored it. It badly needs a new cover now - I've refilled the beads several times - and at aged 15 the chair shape bit isn't big enough - when I get round to it I am just going to make a square one in a fabric she likes.

Thanks unlucky, I was considering that. Great idea.to use existing cover as the pattern as I like the seat part of it.
Off to dunelm later, so I may well browse the fabrics there too.

Yes, I ordered one online.
Just look up bean bag cover on Amazon
