Individual and unusual aprons pieced together from offcuts of denim and other cotton fabrics left from making the aprons in the In The Making range – taking inspiration from Japanese Boro clothing and vintage French and American rustic aprons, which were made from collected fabric scraps and usuable parts of worn out clothing.
I laid bits of fabric out on a big table and pieced each apron together like a jigsaw, balancing the different blue denim tones and complementing with contrasting ticking and red canvas.
The Woodwork Apron No 10 has arrived in the Folksy shop.
It’s been a long process developing this apron, trying to come up with a design that would work for the majority of people’s needs, whether they are a furniture maker, joiner, sculptor or model maker etc. It takes best part of a day to sew, mainly because there’s so much measuring to be done with lots of pockets to make and position.
New linen 4:4 aprons in glorious ‘summer garden’ colours! Now in Folksy shop and new Etsy shop (still under construction but open for business). It’s been rather nice making these aprons, working with colours really lifts your mood!
This apron is based on a set of bespoke aprons I designed and made for the fabulous Marine Ices ice cream shop in Camden, London, last year. This version is made of a much heavier fabric and I added lots more pocket space. Folksy.Heavy-duty-mens-work-apron-No-9
