I want to tell you how to make brutal cup of denim scraps.
This is no big deal. Along with shooting on everything about everything took a couple of hours.
To produce it do not even need a needle and thread, you only need to stock some of the materials that you would otherwise be thrown away. So, we need:
1) thick cardboard tube, which is wound around the linoleum. It is clear that every day is such a thing at home and can not attend, but now you know that you can ask friends or family who started a repair. 🙂 We have a once thrown out (were stupid), and that I begged my brother when he was doing repairs. Even I had to saw it into pieces, as the three-meter in the car does not fit;
2) a bunch of old jeans seams. I used to rework ripped jeans, but, firstly, it is terribly long, and secondly, a lot of debris in this thread fray. So I began to simply cut off. That’s handy! Cut off the need to stitch the seams with beautiful (mostly domestic) close to the seam. Very well, if they are different in color – so even more interesting;
3) hacksaw to cut off a piece of pipe;
4) Furniture stapler;
5) thick cardboard to the bottom;
6) colored cardboard for inner walls of the cup;
7) the glue that you like and it seems quite reliable. I Moment-crystal.
8) a couple of pieces of denim to bottom.
I have a rough edge of the pipe, it had to be cut. I pasted masking tape so that the ends exactly united. He measured out by 10 cm – is the depth of our cup. Taking advantage of a hacksaw (and male force) to cut off a piece of markup. Scotch tape is not necessarily clean.
Now we sort the seams along the length: short (13-15 cm) to vertical (I have 16 pieces), long – for contours (about 43-45 centimeters). One seam of the trouser leg is enough for 2 lanes contours. Now furniture stapler short stretches to one end of the pipe at a distance of approximately 1 cm from each other
Then we begin to spin out long stretches of the side of the cup, hiding under the ends of the vertical stripes. Horizontal stripes when weaving Stretch, so the cup will be smoother. Excess cut the butt and prishpilivayut stapler, it is better not to press strongly to the bracket did not come out from the inside. If you still come out or from the outside to be fit is not tight, it is possible to adjust the hammer.
The photo shows the place stapling. They will not be seen, closed vertical stripes.
The vertical stripes in the weaving and Stretch.
When the spin finish (I got 9 rows) are bent by sticking the ends of the vertical bars and prishpilivayut the ends of the pipe, at the very beginning.
I cut off the excess, but it is more convenient to do it, get neater. That’s the sort of thing we have got:
Making the bed plate. Cut the cardboard circle 2: large – on the outer radius jars, lower – Inland. We cut out of the denim patches on them slices, leaving the hem allowance. Glue the cardboard circle to the jeans (I glued), an incision around the edge and fold back the allowances, also gluing them.
Now connect via Crystal large circle with one end of the resulting cup and little glue inside.
The upper section of closing another strip, sticking it with adhesive.
Cut out of colored cardboard (I took this time black embossed) rectangle, a width of 10 cm, length – equal to the inner circumference of the pipe and glue on the inner walls of the cup.
Now we put the entire structure under the press to the bottom and top rim firmly and evenly stuck. Voila! The cup is ready! You can give your loved or brother, but you can keep the favorite of the hook, pencils or cosmetic brushes in the end.
