First I used some curtains and dinner napkins to do this to my favorite defunct pair of pants.
Then I used the bottom front half of a denim barn jacket to make this many pocketed apron, every patch is a pocket, it's my craft show money, pen, notepad holder. The tapestry panel is from a trip I took to Paris in my pre-mommy life, just after I bought my first sewing machine. It spent the better part of the last decade in the same box as the dinner napkins and curtains.
What to do with the rest of the napkins and the top of the barn jacket, well make a new fancier barn jacket that can stand up to yard work. Because pretty matters.
I wonder what else is lurking in the corners of the attic?
