Grilling Apron from Blue Jeans

This is a quick apron to sew together for backyard grilling.

Approximate Time: 2 hours


  • denim jeans
  • scissors
  • sewing machine
  • thread
  • pins
  • seam binding
  • steam iron


Use the legs and seats of the jeans and sew together to make the width of the apron. Cut side curves.

Use a waistband of the jeans for ties and one for the neck. Add the seam binding before sewing the ties and neck piece on. Sew the ties and neck pieces on.

Press and you are done.

Nice! That would make a great shop apron also.

This craft appeared last year on ThriftyFun. I made quite a few and had a terrific time doing it. They were very well received as Christmas gifts.

I didn't know it had been featured. I had seen a grilling apron and had used bib overall suspenders instead on this one instead of the waistband, as in other aprons I had made. I only joined thrifty fun this year. They are handy aprons to have around.
