One of the best parts of making and selling my super-sturdy, upcycled tool aprons is that it puts me in contact with other hard-working women on a mission.
In the last few years, I’ve made aprons for gardeners, teachers, painters, knitters, seamstresses, decorators, and midwives.
And then there was Vibrantkate, the English Girl Guides camp counselor, who needed one for tent building. Kate, who became a mom this year, told me she now uses her apron for pegging the wash while holding baby Tom. (I bet he’ll have a fun childhood.)
And last week, I completed a project for Donna a local practitioner of massage techniques that help women with birth, pelvic and digestive problems.
Donna needed a special pocket for her massage oils. She loaned me a bottle and I went to work on her apron modification, making an elastic topped canvas pocket which I sewed inside one of the larger pockets.
And here’s the final result!
Success! Another hard-working woman working in one of my tool aprons. It makes me proud
