Country Lore: DIY Denim Apron

Create this easy-to-make accessory from worn-out jeans.
December 2008/January 2009
You can create fun and funky aprons by recycling worn-out or outgrown jeans.


Here is an easy-to-make apron for the young cooks in your life. In fact, it is so easy it might be a good project for a child to make.

Just cut the back side from a pair of worn-out children’s jeans. Sew on whatever bric-a-brac you like and a long-enough sash to tie around the child’s waist. You could even thread the tie through the belt loops rather than sewing it on.

Pop a rolling pin in one pocket and a recipe in the other, and you have a fun and useful gift.
