First I wanted to show the photo of my finished jean bags. My sister gave me a pair of jeans about 2 years ago to make her a jean bag. Well I finally finished and not only did I make one but I made 2 from the same pair of jeans. They are lined with a brown and ecru ticking and used it and burlap for the rolled flowers on one and burlap and a wool hooked center of the sunflower on the other. I ran short of material to make a handle for one so got big canvas eyelets and attached 4 eyelets and then ran cotton cording through the eyelets. The top of the handle is taped with black duct tape which I think adds a finished look to the handle.
On a note about the new Sparkcoach series they have started..we get a 14 day free trial period and noticed today that if we sign up now, that the first month is only 99cents..not much really but then after the first month will the price go up..I don't mind paying for something that is useful to me but so far it seems to be for a beginner here at Sparkpeople..and just helps them manuevor around the site..for me..I'm already doing those things and do it faithfully every day..Usually when I make up my mind to start something, I usually do it and try to stick with it. I found out before when I didn't stick to it I gained it all back..and if I have to track for life then it will be worth it. I do know that other weightloss sites charge a whole lot more and know we have such a blessing by getting this site free..and if they can make a little money to cover the costs to keep it free, then I think that is terrific..but being on a fixed income, the reason I came here in the first place was because I couldn't afford to go to the other pay sites..so I do have mixed feelings about paying for something like the sparkcoach thing..If I thought it was going to be more than the basic stuff, I might consider it but at this point I don't think so..
