Step 1: Materials
1 pair of jeans
1 yard of material (be really green and use an old shirt with a great pattern!)
Needle & thread
Razor Blade, or good seam ripper
(Just a disclaimer....I didn't invent this. Take some time to surf the web and see all the wonderful versions out there. You can really get some good ideas.)
Step 2: Deconstruction
2. Using a razor blade, or a good seam ripper, detach the pockets and label. Detach the belt loops on the bottom only.
3. Cut the front away from the back, leaving the waistband in tact.
Cut up the sides of the jeans to the waistband, leaving the seam attached to the front side.
Cut right up against the bottom of the waistband, carefully through the zipper and to the other
Continue to cut along the other side. Cut the front away from the back between the legs.
Cut the zipper away from the front section. You will not need it as a functional zipper. Take the zipper pull off, and cut along the zipper right up against it. All jean material should be off, along with the zipper itself. It should look like a line of metal when you are done. (See more in step 4)
Step 3: Straighten the front of the apron
Pinch the middle seam up until the jeans are flat and even.
Cut material away from the middle seam, then lay it flat on the front side of the apron.
Using the same colored thread, zig-zag stitch it to the front side. Cut away any excess.
