One Pair Of "Mommy Jeans"   4 Aprons: Part 2
Recycle an old pair of jeans into 4 new aprons!

This is part 2 of my jeans-to-4 aprons tutorials--hope you enjoy it!



Instructions

  • How to make a full apron. One Pair Of "Mommy Jeans"   4 Aprons: Part 2 - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut the jeans into 4 sections: Front, Back, and 2 Legs
    Save the leg portions for PART 1 and the back for Apron #2

    In this example, I am using the front portion of the jeans. If you notice, the front
    seam does not lie flat near the crotch area. In order to alleviate this issue, open the
    front seam 1.5”‐2”, so that you can “flap” one side over the other, making the front flat.

    Sew the “flap” in place.

    Take time to trim off the excess denim underneath.

    If the bottom of the front is uneven, using care, cut across the front making it as
    straight as possible. I went ahead and curved both lower corners, my personal
    preference for this project.

    Cover the raw edges with the bias tape. I actually made my own in Part 1 and had enough left over to use for this apron. Optional: detach the lower part of the side
    belt loops, attach the bias tape, and reattach the belt loops. This allows for a more
    finished appearance.

    Step 8

    Decide what you would like to use for the tie/waistband and how long you need it to
    be. I used the same fabric as the bias tape, cutting a piece 9” X 72”. With right sides
    together fold it in half and sew across one end and along the length of the piece.
    Turn the “tube” inside out and stitch the open end closed. Press and insert it through the belt loops. You just made the tie/waistband!

    I felt like my new apron
    needed a “little more” so I cut out a floral shape from a scrap of denim and my printed fabric , attaching them to the apron with a fancy zigzag stitch.
