An Apron fit for a Gardening Queen

My mother is a true-blue obsessively crazed gardener, and has been for years.  There is never a time during the summer that she doesn’t have dirt under her nails or garden tools wearing holes through her pockets.  It all pays off because she always has the best flowers in town.

For Mother’s Day I decided she needed a gardening apron.  Maybe it will cut down on her jeans bill?  Here is what I came up with from an old pair of carpenter style jeans.
 
        
In case she finds the apron cumbersome, I added an additional button at the perfect width to make it fit the rim of a five gallon bucket.  If she uses it this way, she will have a place for her weeds and her gardening tools.

 
I really enjoyed this project.  It reminded me of my grade school days when my mom made me a jeans bag to hang on the side of my desk.
