  1. Thats all well and good but you should have turned the denim back under its self so u get a neater edge and it will also stop the denim from fraying at the edges…

  2. kiddead83 – You don’t need a neat edge on the bottom of the chair seat where no one will see it, and the denim edge doesn’t get disturbed because it is under the chair frame, so fraying isn’t an issue.
