Then everywhere I looked I saw these types of aprons being featured! Given how many tutorials are out there to make jean leg aprons, I won't attempt to write my own. :)
Instead let me share (and maybe inspire you to make one yourself)...
The first is my prototype: ruffles all around...
Not too exciting...but I did learn a few things.
- those ruffles at the top don't stay up unless attached to the straps
- if you cut the legs off too close to the crotch, you may have some "wave" in the bottom of your apron no amount of ironing can fix.
The next one I didn't cut along a seam, instead I cut it right down the middle front of the leg. This type of cut seems to give the apron a "curvier" shape.
It just seemed so plain so I ended up adding a heart pocket.
Then I got adventurous with the ruffles again: top ruffle facing down (why didn't I think of that the first time around??)
A little jean rosette added to the next one:
Can you all tell I was having fun with these?? So much that I made some more...
