This is such a great idea to recycle a old pair of jeans into a super cute apron. This tutorial shows you how to make and cut your pattern and it is so easy to follow. What a cute gift this would make for Mother's Day or for anytime. You could change out the pockets to make more deep and give to someone who sews or make to accommodate for that painter. Whether for old or young this is a great apron. Instead of the bias tape just fold down ends and use lace around for that extra spark or decorate with some cute embellishments. So many things you can do. Love this.

Such a cute project! This would be such a great gift for friends and family members that love cooking or baking!

This upcycle, recycle denim apron project is perfect for gift-giving! The free-hand drawn pattern is in centimeters but can easily be converted to inches. The edges are encased in bias binding however, I imagine that simply hemming all edges by folding over and stitching would suffice to create a neat edge. The front pocket that is made out of contrasting fabric to hold a few items is a nice touch.
