Something old, something new, nothing borrowed but still blue (8)



Today I finally sat down and finished the denim apron. It is made from one pair of jeans, the backing is an old tablecloth. In the picture below you can see some of the details. 


Since it was a well worn piece of clothing the fabric is very soft and feels wonderful. I was very lucky to find this pair of jeans because of the special details. The four large pockets, the extra fabric inside the pockets, the extra button besides the zipper and the fact that the fabric is very faded. All of this adds to the beauty in the details.

Have a wonderful weekend.
