I've made aprons a couple of times: for moms and little girls. But this was my first time to make them out of old jeans. I used a non-hand-me-down pair from Dorito. I was pleased with the results. And I think the two little guys we live with in Nashville will like them (ages 4 & 6). Along with a copy of "Boys Can Cook," of course, from my own library. Happy Holidays, Holmans!
