Mini Craft Apron

Hi, today I am making a craft apron from an old pair of jeans. I cut the legs of the jeans off just above the crotch area, the ripped up the centre seam at the back and re positioned to give the shape, pinning until ready to sew back together. Then I undid the seams at the sides and ripped along the waistband of the front of the jeans, just leaving the back, rear pockets and the complete waistband. I know it looks like a pic of my bum, but really it isn't lolI sewed the new back seam and used bias binding rather than hemming the sides and bottom of the pinny. I sewed lace over the bias binding and daisy chain braid on the back pockets, hand sewed beads all along the waistband just to add a bit of sparkle, I left the button on the waistband to do it up with and that was it, I now have a pinny with pockets for pens, scissors and knife etc while working. I hope you have enjoyed today’s project, we really want to see pictures of all the items you have made with our inspiration, so don’t forget to leave a comment with a link to any pics. Trish xxx
