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
More aprons in fantastic golden ochre denim.
Men’s No 8 Artisan apron.
Women’s No4 Artisan Apron. Very much a utility style apron, with wider straps and larger pocket than the standard No 4.
I’m quite obsessed with this ochre denim fabric, it’s both beautiful and tough. It puts me in mind of the coats storemen and grocers used to wear in the old days. I put two aprons on the Folksy shop today one with royal blue ties the other with red.
I’ve been working on the idea of an adjustable crossover back apron for a while and this red and navy number is the first one. I’ve made two of these so far, one is in the ‘Number 57’ gallery/shop and the other I just put in the Folksy shop.
It’s taken me ages to get round to getting this apron photographed. I made three of these, one I gave as a Christmas present, one is for sale in ‘Number 57’ gallery/shop, and the third I just put onto the Folksy shop this afternoon.
It is a really lovely loose woven stripe cotton with the odd ‘nubbly’ bit here and there.
Last night I added a new men’s apron to the Folksy shop, and made a ‘men’s apron’ category.
A ‘one off’ mens apron; made from denim offcuts, different shades and some reversed, pieced together to make a unique maker’s apron. It was quite exciting to make; usually I plan designs very carefully, do diagrams etc but this one was more spontaneous, folding and handling the fabric until I got all the fabric pieces in the right place.
No 6 aprons will use the same basic pattern with adjustable neck tie with a loop, pencil pocket on the breast, large pocket, narrow ties, but each will be unique with different arrangements of fabric offcuts.
My first festive apron. I really loved this fabric when I saw it in Rolls and Rems, but it took me a few weeks to ‘take the plunge’… then I went back a few days later to buy the fabric with the tiny red stars for the contrast fabric.
This is a new apron, with two neck ties which knot at the back – this is for more length or coverage adjustment.
Actually this apron was made weeks ago, but I couldn’t get a decent photo of it – we had much better luck today it was so beautiful and warm! I particularly like James photo taken from behind the geraniums!
Listed a new No 4 House Apron on Folksy. Dark denim with white top stitching, which is tricky to sew but I like the finished effect. I’ve made a No4 Artisan Apron too, in the same fabric, but haven’t managed to get a decent photo of it yet!
I finished these last week but only just got around to photographing it. This is almost the same as the cross-over back No4 Artisan Apron, I’ve changed the pocket design and I think I will use prints or woven surface patterns for this one. I wear my dark tie-dye No4 Artisan Apron all the time; the cross-over back feature is great, it’s so comfortable and easy to get on and off – particularly useful with my ‘frozen shoulder’ and recent tummy operation.
Unfortunately it’s a bit hard to see the very nice fabric from the very small photos on the Folksy shop, they look pale grey, hopefully people will click to look at a larger image.
