scraps + jeans = Gardening Apron Happiness

Here it is: proabably the cutest apron I've ever pullled off (modeled here by the sweet friend who I made it for):


And I say that easily because the thing came together so easily (and late at night after I was struggling for hours trying to make a messenger bag with a double pocket)--that it was like these scraps just wanted to be this apron. 

But I love aprons, especially for dirt digging, so if you want to make one too (and you've got some old jeans you'd be happy to take the scissors to), click on over to my blog (or skip the chat and go straight to the tutorial.)

I'll be back soon with my repentant jeans-buying confession and (hopefully) some scintillating insight on t-shirt tailoring--which is what I've been doing since I posted last. No $2 shirt in the county is safe from me and my scissors.
