I love canvas. Anything canvas really. Love the texture and love the versatility. I really wanted to create an apron using canvas but all the canvas I had on hand was pretty stiff, even after a good washing. So I found some plain ol' white broadcloth in my stash and tea-dyed it to make it look more vintage and more like a natural canvas. I also really wanted big, deep and wide pockets as I never know what will actually end up in the pockets. And for me, exposed seams was a tough one. I generally like finished, hemmed seams and finishing but wanted to try an apron with all exposed seams. I stay-stitched every single piece and sure enough, each apron has gone thru the wash a few times without excessive fraying!
Really loved the way this apron turned out but of course, practically took over and after jabbing myself in the gut a few times with the phone and other tools I was carrying in the pockets, I decided I needed an apron which housed pockets in the rear, literally!
I love the way this one turned out and with the pockets again being deep and wide, I only have to worry about what I end up sitting on as opposed to creating gut punches with phones and tools! This one ended up being a wrap-around style. Still sitting on the fence regarding whether I like the traditional over-your-head style apron or the wrap. Will let you know after I play with each for a while.
Thanks for stopping by!
