As a gift = Wrap a bottle of wine using old shirt sleeves and a pair of cuff links. No directions but if I were making this I would just cut the shirt sleeve, make a hem, add a pair of cuff links and there ya go.
Apron out of jeans. looks to be one piece using the whole leg split at the center front or center back. leg style or shape would play a part in the final shape of the apron. wide leg or flare jeans would make a fuller apron I imagine
