About This Class

For this class, I’ll assume you have basic sewing skills. I’m using a sewing machine in the videos, but you can hand sew your apron instead; it’ll just take a bit longer to finish your project.

Welcome to Studio Fu: Sew Your Own Denim Apron.

Studio Fu is my take on Kung Fu, which literally means “time spent at skilful work.” Studio Fu classes are short, and will help you make the most of your time, tools, and techniques as an artist.

Today’s class is about taking old jeans and reworking them into a simple and effective studio apron. I’ve been making and using this style of apron in my own studio for years, and they’re also great for kids to wear too.

Check the Project area for what you'll need for class.

Pretty easy and well explained tutorial.
Short class, great project. Even if you don't make the featured apron, there's some great tips here for recycling jeans.
