denim gardeninig pouch made from old jeans

I took an old pair of jeans and cut off all but the backside with the pockets. I left the belt loops so I could clip my keys etc to them with a caribiner. I then took some of the material from one of the legs to make a large pocket that covers the two smaller pockets...this way I could keep my camera and other small items away from dirt, debris, and gardening tools which normally gets into a gardening pouch. I didn't bother sewing the outer edge and bottom of the pouch because the 'hippie' in me thought it would look nice if it starts to fray :)

    I, too, do a lot with old blue jeans. Your idea is grrrr8!!!! I plan on making something from the pockets for my golf bag so that I can easily get to long T's, short T's, ball markers, etc. Thank you

    Ive made one of these with an old pair of my jeans. I found that when you already have clothes on and you put around your waist or hips that your jean apron will be too tight. (Your regular size over all your clothes, makes a tight fit.)
