JEANBAG™ – On the cutting room floor

September 30, 2013

Denim hems

Last week I cut out the first five JEANBAGs and I’m pretty darn excited!

I want to make the best use of my materials in the construction of JEANBAG™, so I am using most of the denim from the jeans, excluding any studs, waistband fasteners and zippers. This is because I imagine some people may use their JEANBAG™ on wooden floors and I definitely don’t want any metal parts to scratch their flooring. I am keeping these items, however, as I’m sure there will be a use for them down the track. I just haven’t figured out what yet!

For the most part, I’m also not using the hem of the jeans in the construction of JEANBAG™, as I don’t want any ‘lumpy ridges’ to compromise its comfort. So, I’ve been playing around with all these little denim hems and thinking about how I can use them in a new way…

This week I’m constructing the first official JEANBAG™. It will undergo a final wash test at full scale. Then, it’s off to my friend’s kid’s playroom for a ‘slam’ test. If it survives everything that a nine year old Australian boy will throw at it, it’s game on!

    Woo hoo! You go girl!
    Here’s a little ditty to listen to as you work…

    You probably won’t know this song (you’re way too young!) – but it’s a classic one-hit-wonder from the 70’s that just might become your theme-song!

    Love ya work…Big Al xx

      Thanks Al! Now this I remember… I must be older than you think 😉
