Today I'm making two ochre denim cross back aprons... I'll make two more (already cut out ready on the table) on Friday... Making different apron designs in small batches keeps 'the joy - ln The Making'.
Sewing the cross back straps on to a new colourway of my No4:3 apron - charcoal denim and red canvas.
Still of me and new No12 craft market aprons, at my open studio - from a film by South East Makers Club 2017!

Aprons for Makers!

I design and make my range of aprons in my home studio in hilly-leafy South East London. Each apron is crafted with meticulous attention to detail and finish, turnings measured, pressed, stitched, thick turnings hammered and all the thread ends hand sewn inside.

Aprons, historically humble garments, embody the maker's work ethic and mindset. Using traditional fabrics and working in partnership with makers, I create distinctive handmade work aprons for makers, artists, craft practitioners and artisan businesses.

Inspiration comes from vintage workwear and observing the skill and craft of makers, to develop the best overall shapes and functional details. A life spent exploring materials/media, art and making, has meant aprons have been very much part of my daily wardrobe too.
