Junior No7 apron sample…

I’ve been pondering doing a children’s crossback apron for quite a while – a couple of weeks ago a lady contacted me via Etsy to ask for just that! Her husband had bought her one of my No 4:3 aprons, which loves, and she wanted a couple like it for her young son.

I made a version of the adult No 7, so that the apron could be size/age adjustable age 4-7. I used the long side offcuts from cutting denim No 4 & No 7, seaming the aprons down the middle. This will reduce the final price of the apron a bit, when added to the making time which is only 40 minutes less than making than an adult size apron, plus webbing, d-rings and thread.

Here is the first sample….it is rather cute.

New ‘Boro’ style aprons…

I listed a new apron range on Etsy today!

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.

Cutting out new aprons over the weekend…

New No 4:3 colourway charcoal/red, and also new No12 half apron (not pictured, too dark and rainy!) in heavy charcoal denim, cut out ready to sew this week – using my two new trestle tables!

New – ‘The Makers Market Apron’ – No12

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.
