New men’s apron No6

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.



Festive Apron. House No 5.

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.

First ‘House No4 Aprons’

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.






New Sparky Apron


I’ve been working on this apron for a few weeks, after seeing a picture of a baker wearing one similar. It’s loose around the body and no neck tie. I saw the fabric in Rolls & Rems and it seemed just the thing for this new shape. James and I took photos of the new aprons today at his studio in Greenwich….then we went for lunch, amazing Thai soup in Greenwich Covered Market!
