Crafters Apron

The Stitch Society

Yesterday I spent a lovely couple of hours in Skipton making my own crafters apron. It was a workshop organised by my Embroiders Guild with Charlotte from The Stitch Society.

The Stitch Society aprons are traditionally styled, heavy duty aprons, Charlotte sells them ready made, but she is just in the process of printing a pattern. They can be made from fabrics such as denim, moleskin…or in my case a very pretty furnishing fabric!

The Stitch SocietyIsn’t it gorgeous! I bought it in Leeds Market from Fletchers, it was £10 a metre, which was a bit pricey for an apron, but it was love at first sight…

 

The apron is a lovely design, it has cross-over straps at the back so it it is really comfortable and covers front, sides and most of back! It’s also got a big roomy pocket with pleats in, perfect for stashing sewing stuff in like seam rippers! I’m planning to use it as my sewing apron, in the hope that I don’t get quite so covered in threads…yesterday I was stitching a jelly roll, when I stood up my skirt looked like a snow-storm!!!

I was particularly pleased with my apron straps, I fussycut the top one to get butterflies centred along it, but it was a bonus when the fabric underneath worked out too!

The pattern was very straight forward to follow, Charlotte was always on hand if there was anything we weren’t sure about, or in my case to stop me cutting the hem off!!! She also gave me help with pattern matching…doesn’t my pocket match beautifully, thanks to Charlotte! The apron has nice details such as french seams and a front facing. We were even given a label to stitch on the front!

It was pretty quick to make too, it was 2 1/2 hours from arriving at the church hall to finishing my apron. I love it!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    That is a lovely piece of cloth, and the apron pattern is very practical. Must remember it . . . 😉
