  2. Would it be horrible if I just filled every pocket with chocolate? Then it could be my wear everywhere apron! :)

  8. I have learned NEVER to toss a pair of old jeans. You can turn them into skirts, quilts, & I’ve even recycled them into toss pillows for my sofa. I have never seen them transformed into CUTE aprons before. I LOVE this idea & the sashy belt as well! Thanks for sharing!

  21. I am going to try and make this tomorrow for myself...always losing my clicker for work and stuff...much needed pockets would be great for a teacher who is always on her feet and needs her desk with her pretty much at all times....can't wait to see how it turns out!
