Old Jeans to an Apron


Posted on : | By : admin | In : Crafts

Now and then, people often buy jeans and just store them inside their closet once it doesn’t fit well anymore or they are already too outdated to be used. But it shouldn’t be that way. Old jeans can be used in so many ways that you actually can’t even imagine so don’t just let go of your old stuff just like that. It can eventually turn into some useful stuff like bags, wallets and even an apron to be used in your kitchen.

Aprons are being used inside the kitchen to protect your clothes from being wet and dirty. In this project, we will teach you on how to turn your old scrappy jeans into a new kitchen necessity and just perfect for your lively kitchen.

We will basically need an old pair of jeans, sewing machine, scissors, string or twine, foam and scrap pieces of fabric to get everything started.

Let’s first cut up the inseam of one pant leg and up to the back to open flat. We now have a piece to work with and never mind the measurements, as long as your okay with the length and it’s all good. Next, we will remove the excessive parts for us to have neat edges. Pin a 1/2 inch seam around the two sides of the cut jeans. Choose a nice color of thread and it around the sides you have pinned. Around the top seam, put a gap of about 2 inches for the ties.

After that, it’s time to add some appliqués. Use the scrap pieces of your old shirts; we will need red, white and yellow. We will now cut the different colored fabrics into different shapes and designs. We’ll be making a kitchen necessity so we need to come up with a design to fit the scene. First, a hotdog; using the red cloth, we will pattern it into a hotdog, make about two of them. Second, from your white and yellow fabric, we will be making an egg. Let’s stuff the egg yolk with used foams to make it more realistic. After which, sew them into your apron and we’re done.
