I used Simplicity 2682 to make it.  I really like it.  I think it would look even better had i used women's jeans instead of old baggy mens jeans but that's all i had at the time.  Still I think it's cute and i can't wait to make more.  I love that it has pockets everywhere.  I even left a belt loop at the top in case it can come in handy for something.  Also, you can make it interesting by giving it a different colored sash.  I made this one out of old scraps of fabric. The apron still needs to be washed so that the edges are frayed.  that will be a nice finishing touch.  I'm gifting this one to a friend as a house warming gift.

That's the best recon of jeans I 've seen in a long time! I have lots of old holey jeans this would be perfect for.

Super-super-super cute!  I love that you repurposed some old jeans, and how practical this is.  And so pretty, to boot!  Very nice!  I'd love to see a shot of this once you've washed it a few times.  Smiley

Here's attempt #2.  I used misses's jeans, so it's a lot cuter, i think.  Plus, this is a photo after the washing so you can see that the fraying around the edges really makes it way cooler!   i think next time, i might make it wrap around a bit more by cutting at least 1" into the backside of the jeans rather than just cutting around the side-edge of the jeans.  Although, it's probably cuter this way.  What do you think?
