Apron Made from Jeans

My daughter and I have been cleaning and sorting "Stuff" throughout the house. We are getting ready to have a garage sale. I began to think about how I was going to deal with the cash that is needed for a garage sale. Then I grabbed a pair of old jeans I had and made an apron from it. Sort of with the Home Depot or Lowes handy aprons for men in the back of my mind. ( the ones they use for tools)
I decieded I needed more pockets then just the two back pockets. I cut away the top of the jeans and inserted some fabric to add a deeper and wider pocket.

Here is my finished apron! I added some applique flowers with "Steam A Seam 2", put a binding around the raw edge of the cut jeans/ now apron and added some "apron stings" to tie around my waist and Wala! A handy dandy apron to keep the cash close to me. Now I won't have to worry about where the cash is, or that it would walk away with someone! :o)
Hey! I am also being "Green" and re-using something that was getting ready for the trash! Something old turned into something new again!!! :0)


  1. That is so cute! You are a genius! Now I know what to do with those jeans the dryer shrank!

  2. What a great idea...lots of style, too;)

  3. Hi there! (all the way from CA) I saw this sort of thing at Apex's Plain and Simple Quilt shop about a year ago. Thanks for the reminder...it is wonderful!

  4. That apron is so cute! Wait until my girls see that!

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice compliment. Love the apron! I am sure it will come in very handy.
