So, my son has blown the knees out in 3 pairs of jeans and I turned them into shorts.  Those leftover legs were really bugging me though.  I trimmed off the frayed parts, turned them inside out and sewed them across the bottom.  Then I took a long scrap of khaki and blue striped canvas that I had, just a little wider than the legs, and about half again as long as the legs lined end to end.  I sewed the sides of each pocket to the canvas and I have a hanging storage system for umm, whatever.  The sides should probably be turned under and hemmed.  Yeah, I didn't think of that until after and now it seems like a pain.

I second that.  Need a picture. 
It sounds super cute.  My son also blows out his knees in his jeans.

Or you can turn the legs into tubes to make a grocery bag holder.  You just need to make a loop to hang it and use elastic or tie at the bottom.  It wouldn't have to be repaired, and the fabric is sturdy enough to manage being stuffed.

If you hang your clothes like me, you could use it to hold those darn little wooden pegs.

Oh, I like the apron!  I'd hang clothes out and use pins if it weren't for all the stupid pollen.   

I will have to get some pics when I get my camera situation sorted out.   I am thinking of ripping it apart and making it horizontal instead of vertical.
