Secondly you make the sling just using one old pair of jeans. The legs are cut open and sewn together to form a large rectangle.

The waist band of the jeans is then used to make the tabs to attach the denim sling to the copper frame. Again more detailed instructions can be found at Pillarboxblue.com
