Apron, Apron, Who’s Got The Apron?

I do now, and so does my daughter, after finally utilizing Miss Flibbertigibbit’s apron tutorial.   I saw Lorraine’s apron and tutorial a few months ago and printed it out to make “some day”.  While going through my husband’s ties and pulling two out for the Goodwill box this past weekend, I decided to use them as the apron ties instead.

I found a pair of jeans of  mine that I don’t really care for and cut the back and front to use, keeping the pockets intact.  Add in some fabric from my sewing room that I cut with pinking shears to keep me lazy and not have to sew a hem for the ruffles.

I used some owl fabric that I had left over from when I made my daughter a pillow for hers.

I put the ties through the loops and then just sewed the ties in place along each side on both of them.

For mine I used a grey and white striped fabric, also pinked at the bottom.

And there you go! Two aprons from a pair of jeans, two old ties and some fabric in my stash.   Cost = $0.00.

Mine will come in handy soon since I will be attending an Annie Sloan workshop.  If nothing else, maybe I will look like I know what I’m doing!

Hey Kathy~
As soon as I saw the pictures, I was thinking what a fun "tool" belt! And I see that's what you are thinking as well for paint brushes etc. Those could really come in handy. Have a great weekend~

We made these, too, my sister and I. We put a ruffle around the whole jeans section. I like yours better. I think I'll try another one like you did. I like the longer ruffle, too. Best wishes, Linda

What a great way to make an apron! I have made several using old skirts, but never blue jeans. So cute!

awal.ny said...

The aprons are just darling. I think my daughter would wear them as a skirt if left together.
