This was done with the waistbands of old denim jeans.  Even has a can holder.

Oh, I LOVE THIS! You are my hero today. I saved all the pockets from jeans I cut up for fabric and turned them into quilts and wall hangings but the waist bands were something I couldn't think of a use for. It hurt to throw them out and now I regret it! Please do tell how you attached them. This is a wonderful craft, it's on my list of future projects for SURE!

Brilliant! I would have never thought of this and would have just tossed the frame out

I bet this is much sturdier and more comfortable than the original chair! It looks nicer too!
