Old Jeans Into an Apron

I made this apron for my mother in-law using an old pair of jeans and some thrift-ed lace and heavy duty strapping.
For the flower I cut out graduated circles and cut into them to make the rough petals. I squeezed each one and rolled it around in my hand to get them frayed, stitched the pile together, made a running stitch along the lace, tightened it up, stitched it down and added the button while securing it to the apron.

See Art, Adventures and a Toddler for more projects and other stuff...
Thanks, Tamara
