This is what I was dreaming of when I created my new harvest apron design: a wealth of homegrown vegetables picked from my own back yard. With that bounty in mind, big pockets are this apron’s number one feature. Each side opening measures about 9 inches.Still need for space for melons or lots of homegrown tomatoes? Unbutton the pocket top and the piece drops down forming a nice padded shelf for produce.Cradle your harvest without bruising it. I made this apron full-length to help carry the weight of summer vegetables. The wrap around ties keep it close to the body and out of the way as you pick. Three of my harvest aprons are finished and headed for my ETSY shop or a fall craft fair near you. Many more are in the works. Like all of my Rewind Designs, they’re super-sturdy, and made from vintage and reclaimed materials. Only the thread is new. Groovy blue and green is done.And my favorite of this batch–canning jars. Nothing says “summer bounty” like this reclaimed kitchen towel–except maybe a big homegrown tomato sandwich.
So how does your garden grow this summer? Could you use your own harvest apron?
