Artisan apron

 

Apron420wAs you may know, I work from home in a little room off the kitchen and I used to find myself doing all the things that needed to be done instead of actually working. If you work from home I’m sure you know what I’m talking about!

After much thought I realised that I needed a work uniform, something to wear that made me (and everyone else) know that I was not at home but at work. And so I made my apron and have been gradually embellishing it with my favourite sayings and little badges and motifs and now when I wear my apron I feel creative and ready to work.

My apron is so lovely and cream and special that I’m not tempted to sweep the floor or brush the dog when I’m wearing it! And now when I take it off I actually feel that I’ve left work behind for the day- which is a marvellous thing for an apron to achieve don’t you think?

Anyway, after lots of requests for a pattern it is finally here and in my Etsy shop now.

    I made this apron from your pattern and wear it when I am being creative on my machine!

    I heard your talk about your apron when you were on Pat Sloan’s American Patchworking & Quilting podcast. It sounded lovely. Now I know how it looks and it LOOKS lovely, too!

    What a lovely idea – that the Apron is a work uniform! Surely the loveliest uniform. That definitely chimes with me! I’m going to try it too!
