Scrap pieces of fabric
Step 1: Cut Your Apron Piece Out of the Jeans
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.
Step 2: Make the Edges Neat
Pick out a fun color of thread and sew 2 top stitched lines around the edges you just pinned.
For the top seam, allow for a 1 to 2 inch gap for the apron ties. Sew it down to form a casing that you will thread the ties through later.
Step 3: Add Pockets
Turn the pocket right side out, and fold the top to the inside to get a clean edge. Pin and sew these edges down. Repeat for as many pockets that you'd like.
Pin the pockets in place, and sew along the sides and bottom.
Step 4: Add Appliqued Decorations
Step 5: Add a Tie for Your Waist
Place a pin on the end of the twine and thread it through the top casing of your apron. Once it is pulled all the way through, tie bigger knots on each side so it won't slip through.
To secure the ties, stitch the holes closed leaving a little space for the twine (don't sew the twine down at all!). Tie it around your waist and you are ready to get dirty!
