1. That is precious!

The only problem I have is that we tend to wear jeans until they are unwearable, so the apron would not look nearly as pretty as that, lol.

2. I know what you mean, but then think about it....

if you intend to really really use an apron, does it have to start out looking cute? Since I would mess it up badly so fast, it might as well be scrungy from the beginning.

I think it is pretty cute, but I hate to work with denim....it is too much work.

3. Good points and I'm not sure that my machine could handle denim, to be honest.

It's great but if the seams get too thick, it tends to lock up.

Which reminds me, I need to get more needles while in town.

I have a couple of silly aprons, but I consistently forget to put them on, lol.

6. Could do, but I love my macheen!

Got halfway through a new shopping bag today, and it's great, but I would not have wanted to do it by hand.
