So I got this idea to take denim jeans, bought cheaply at the thrift store, trick them out with some western themed applique (a shirt bought at a resale boutique), added boullion fringe for a Dale-Evans-meets Mae-Wes look and made a rocked out apron.
I wore it to Higginsville's "Country Fair"
with a pair of skinny jeans (I've lost over 30 pounds this past summer);
"new" red cowgirl boots and a hat, both bought at a local flea market.
I'm rockin' the red these days.
I made Rebecca a more "hip" apron with flowers
cut from a 1960s fabric remnant and some fibery fringe
bought for a different a project (years ago) that I never completed.
Rebecca looks better in the cowgirl hat than I do!
I also made a "prairie" version with appliques of
(tattered and stained) embroidered linens
and a crocheted lace edging for the bottom of the apron.
I gave it to my antiques friend, Liz, whose shop we are photographed in (above)
and I didn't get a photo of the apron before I gifted it to her!
(bad blogger, bad blogger!)
The theme and medium possibilities are just about endless for this basic denim apron.
I'm thinking of painting one with acrylics--
denim is just unprimed canvas after all!
You may take the idea and run with it---
just link back to my blog and let me know so I can see your creation.
