Has anyone else noticed an Autumnal feel in the air this week? I know some of you will be trying to block it out :) I love this this of year though and am quite excited to see the berries ripening in the hedgerows and the fields speckled with harvested straw bales, it feels like a time of plenty.
On the home front we're reaping quite a harvest of our own - squashes, beans, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, garlic and more, all making their way in from the allotment and sitting in cheery looking piles around the kitchen waiting to be turned into tasty meals. No surprise then that i've been inspired to make some aprons this week!
Red Apples Apron
The fabric i've used for this apron is a linen/cotton blend featuring the Red Apples design from my Autumn Naturally collection (available to buy for your own makes from my Spoonflower Shop).
Its a classic apron shape, with a useful pocket on the front,
and cotton webbing neck loop and ties.
I've made the ties long enough to tie at the back, but not so long you can bring then around to tie at the front as you can with some aprons as i always find the extra length annoying. What do you think? Are you a front tier or a back tier when it comes to aprons?!
For the second apron i've used my Garden Tools design (also available from Spoonflower). I had in mind that it would work as a kitchen apron but also for light gardening tasks too such as harvesting veg.
The design and size is the same as the red apple one (the body measures 77cms from top to bottom).
I had a go at modelling them to give an idea of how they look on :)
Both aprons are available now from my website and Etsy shop priced £23 each. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on them in the comments!
As always, i'm also looking forward to my weekly nose around Handmade Harbour... See you over there :) x
