Entry for August 2020's Guitar Of The Month is open - ENTER HERE!

Recommended Posts

I recently bought myself a wall hanger that can take up to 9 guitars. However it came with a warning that the coating on the hangers could react with nitrocellulose lacquer. I think it just affects the accessory (leads, headphones, etc.) hangers, but just to be on the safe side I butchered an old pair of jeans

I even had to go and buy some orange thread for the proper "look" :D

Better safe than sorry!

The "pants" look just like those on some comics or even puppet animations.

You could make a prosperous career by stitching jeans and other textiles for doll house hobbyists!

They are like the skinniest drainpipe jeans ever!

You should sell them as an aftermarket upgrade to those hangers. You could call them "rock socks".

Nicely done.  I would still keep an eye out for problems.  My understanding is the vinyl off-gasses are what cause the problem.

How on earth did you sew those, do you have a miniature sewing machine?

I have a Necchi 544 and turn old work pants into shorts

I cut and double stitched the "hems" first to get it to the correct length, then cut strips & sewed along the length inside out, before finally turning them the right way out using a knitting needle to push with :)

Oh, and then used a thinner knitting needle to get the seam to sit nicely once I'd slipped the sleeves onto the prongs

I have confidence sewing after making a festival flag last year :D

I made the "rewind" pennant, my wife and a friend made the audio cassette flag. After coping with polyester slipping and wriggling all over the place, denim is a doddle! :D

Yes I imagine polyester would be difficult to sew, and I've never done anything like that, just hems on jeans etc

It just occurred to me I did something similar, I put clear plastic tubing on my guitar stand. It originally had rubber and it had perished over the years
