What to do with your old jeans? Aprons!

I had some old jeans lying around, (let's be honest, who doesn't have old jeans lying around?) so I decided to make myself an apron.  
Yes, I made it in the middle of making Christmas gifts for everyone else.  
Very selfish, I know.  Oh well.

So easy to make.  One pair of jeans will make 2 aprons.  Each leg makes one apron.
I folded and ironed material to make my edging.  But if you found some cute wide ribbon, it would be even easier to put your edging on.
I think I will be making more of these soon.

I made this half apron for my sister. 
She owns a bakery and hopefully she can get some use out of it.

While I was making my apron, my son wanted one too.
So I tried to make it look manly.  It's longer than a normal apron would be and it has boy print around the edges.  He loves it.  (even if he won't look at the camera)

Happy New Year everyone!!
