Ladybug Apron from Recycled Jeans

Those old jeans are not going to last very long on the bottom shelf of my sewing room cabinet! Not since I discovered this great idea for using them to make aprons! If you like ladybugs, you'll love this one...

Ladybug Apron from Recycled JeansI had a pair of old black jeans on the shelf and this remnant of fabric I had recently purchased with ladybugs all over it. What a perfect match!

I put a little scalloped edge on the bottom, but my bias binding technique on the points certainly leaves something to be desired. Usually I love to show lots of close-up pictures, but that's one close-up you can live without. I was not about to rip out all that sewing though, so I just pressed it really well and it is what it is. Still very practical and cheerful at the same time!

Ladybug Apron from Recycled JeansI even discovered a little ladybug appliqué hiding in the cabinet so I pressed it onto the apron right near the top, since we know that ladybugs always crawl to the highest point. This one is on his way up!

Happy Stitching!
