The first Basketball was invented in 1942 by a physical education teacher named, James Naismith. The first basketball had seams on the outside that was used to identify the type of ball it was, and it was also used to for support. The seams in the basketball help the person playing keep grip of the ball.

How do you change boot cut jeans into flare leg jeans?

You must first turn the jeans inside out. Then take apart the seams from the knee down on the inside leg and outside leg(both sides of each leg). Then you must cut triangles of jean or other material the length of the knee down. Please allow 1/2 inch fabric for seams(or whatever seam allowance you like). 4 peices must be cut, then each one sewn to either an inside or outside of each leg. Then hem and you are set to wear a stylish flare! Some tips are to iron the seams open and trim the seams before wearing so that the fabric will lay well. Another tip, when using a sewing machine, use a new, heavy duty sewing needle. If sewing by hand, it will take longer, but still can be done!
