Yesterday, I pulled out my sewing machine for the first time in about 6 years or so. I took an old pair of jeans, cut here, stitched there, and pretty soon* I had a new apron. The back of the jeans became the front of the apron. The legs became the upper "bib" part. A snazzy piece of grosgrain ribbon with silver skulls on it became the neck strap. There are a ton of rookie mistakes here, but hey, it works.
* "Pretty soon" is a relative term. It took what seemed like hours to remember how to thread the machine, wind a bobbin and get going.
