I bet most of us have had a pair of jeans that seemed super special and then got worn and worn and worn out. ( Anyone else remember when Zena jeans were THE jeans to own? ) And of course you don't throw them away, you reinvent. This pair of jeans became bracelets as well as this apron.
Grab that old pair of jeans. Cut up the side seam right next to the seam. Cut along the waistband on the front of the jeans and leave the waist band attached to the back of the jeans. The waistband will serve as the tie for your apron.
Cut the jeans off below the back pockets at the length that works for you.
Sew on a wide ruffle to add length to the apron. This ruffle is actually an old valence I had made for windows in a previous house. (Pays to save things you know you can re-use!) And embellish as you choose.
I added a drop cloth rosette, and bits of lace to finish this one off.
And there it is, a cute free apron so that favorite pair of jeans can become a new favorite apron. :) Let me know if you make one. There are lots of fun variations on this apron floating around.
