A chance remark by a glassmaker on Instagram, about needing big pockets for craft markets, was the ‘lightbulb moment’ for designing this apron.
The aim was an apron that was brilliantly useful at craft fairs, beautifully made and intrinsically convey the wearer is a practicing artist/maker.
Delighted to have found some more of this tie dye denim to make a few cross back aprons.
I’ve been wearing one like it for a couple of years – I like how splodges of paint etc add to the character!

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.
The fabric for this one is pretty extraordinary, a slightly coated brown denim, indigo blue on the reverse. folksy.com/items/6833336-Woodwork-Apron-Chestnut-Brown-Blue-Denim-No10
Really chuffed, yesterday my No8 men’s apron was added to Folksy Favourites! folksy.com/folksy-favourites
