Favourite old jeans get pimped...

So, a couple of years ago I would have thrown away my favourite jeans when they wore out...but not anymore! I knew that if I had a little look on the blogs I'd find something suitable...

I found the perfect idea here at Betz White's fab blog - a post from 2007!  I wear an apron almost all the time and never have enough pockets so this will tick all the boxes.

Now, I wouldn't be so bold as to call this a turtorial as such...but here's what I did;

 and ta daaaa...wear with pride!

Betz added an extra pocket (beyond my capability) and ribbons to tie but the waistband serves the same purpose for me.

It's nowhere near as clever, or as well executed as Betz's but 
I still love it...fee x
