DIY Jean Apron

Make an all-purpose jean apron out of an old pair of jeans.

| Summer 2015

Of all the things you can do with an old pair of jeans, recycling them into a cute apron is perhaps the most perfect application. By design, the denim is rugged and durable — perfect for protecting your clothes while out in the garden or cooking on the grill. The fabric will hold up to continued use and washing as well. So make a cute apron with this tutorial from Carissa Bonham at Creative Green Living, and then have fun getting it dirty!

Dear Carissa, Oh, my, that is the cutest thing I ever saw! What a great idea! You know how I love aprons (I have written about how to make an every day one without a pattern) so I am going to make one of these right away. As a matter of fact, these would make great Christmas gifts and since I love making all my gifts this is going to be one of my gift projects. Great story! - Renee
