Default What to do with an old pair of Bib Overall Shorts....

I found this idea in a book, so can not take all the credit but I did change it up to work with the Bib Overalls that I had. Hope you all like it.

By the way, the front of the Bib Overalls will be another apron, once I get that finished. Once done, I will have about a hand full of scraps of jeans left over and one button that will not be used. There was one button already missing so that worked in my favor. I reused all the other "hardware" on the bibs so no other waist.

Very cute!!!
I have used old jeans to make purses, and cut the pockets off unsalvageable jeans ( AKA worn to shreds), added a twine cord, and used them as wall pockets for mini silk flowers, but I never used them for an apron.......yet!!
Thanks for sharing your neat project!
