Ok, I could make them faster. I could hire someone to help with the sewing or use fewer fabrics, fewer rows of stitching.
But then it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun to make my super-sturdy, vintage fabric tool aprons.
I love that each one is little fabric puzzle that takes time to solve. The only downside is I run out of inventory sometimes.
But I’ve just listed 4 new tool aprons on my ETSY site. And here they are:
1940s barkcloth with an old apron fragment and blue tulip skirt. I love blue and brown! (Note: This apron sold within hours of posting. See what I mean about inventory–)
NYC designer “Vera” silkscreened textiles that were the all the rage in the 60s and 70s. And who can resist watermelons in July?
I love this floral fabric from my best friend’s great grandma’s very best chair. The white and yellow pop art daisies are also a nice blast from the past.
And finally, an old bed cover meets a men’s pink denim shirt. ( I do love a man in pink!)
Got a favorite? I do. But two more aprons are on the sewing table now. I always love the one I’m working on at the moment the most!
