Denim Craft Apron from Old Jeans
In case you have outgrown your pair of jeans, instead of disposing of them directly, now you can turn them into a stain-resistant, durable and adorable denim apron for your little ones. You might even want one for yourself, I sure do. If you surf the web, you may find innumerable uses of your old jeans but we will learn here how to make kids’ craft aprons from our old pair of denim jeans.
- A pair of outgrown jeans
- Rotary cutter
- Cutting mat (it is optional)
- Bias or trim tape
- Fleece scraps to make decorative heart
- Sewing needle for denim
- Cut the legs of your jeans off first.
- You have to cut open the leg of the pant along its inseam.
- Give a good finished bottom to your bottom by centering your template on the pant leg that is opened up.
- The top and side edges of your apron can be finished with a bias tape.
- Take out a back pocket from your jeans and stitch it in the apron’s bottom half.
- Use a zig zag stitch to add a fleece heart on your apron’s top half.
- Measure you kid with a string to find out the length of your apron’s straps.
- Cut through the outer seam’s side and get it trimmed according to the size required.
You can recycle just about anything with an old pair of jeans as a project. An old, stained, ripped denim dress is another possibility too. The older and worn, the better. You can use parts such as a worn waistband, or pocket for accents. You will realize how many cute things you can make by recycling your old clothing. I hate parting with old clothing, and this is an alternative by giving the clothing a new purpose.
