Scrap pieces of fabric

Step 1: Cut your Apron Piece out of the Jeans

Lay the jeans on a flat surface and cut a straight line from the crotch to one leg.

Cut along the side seam and open the leg up. You now have your piece to work with.

Hold it up to yourself to set what length you would like it. Cut off the excess from the top, leaving about 1 inch extra.

this Gove me a few ideas for a modified males version. I know what I'm doing this weekend :D
This is such an awesome idea for some jeans I just had the zipper break in. Except I think I want to try cupcakes instead of bacon and eggs. Thanks for sharing this awesome idea!!!
