Green bean apron

I have been fortunate recently to have sold most of my vegetable-themed home-made aprons. My stocks depleted, I got sewing and made this latest version - a green bean glut apron. Here it is - lots of beans!

Pretty much as soon as this one was made, I sold it as well - it seems that these aprons are quite popular as Christmas gifts for which I am very grateful. I am holding some back too for gifts to my friends and family. I will need to get a wriggle on sewing up a few more.














I am part the way through making an apron from some cucumber slices fabric as well.  Many people think that they are zucchini slices -  zucchini, cucumber... I don't know. It will  have a bright green contrasting fabric for the neck piece and bias.

I have more fabric of this ilk -  I have recently bought some onion and garlic fabric - I think the onion is the best one.

I think I should make some man aprons - what do you think? Much more suitable for tong wielding BBQers than the awful aprons that many of our outdoor chefs wear don't you think?  I will have to find a good man apron pattern.  Perhaps with a tag for hanging tongs?

And I also have fabric that is a glut of corn cobs. I will make that into an apron the same style as the green bean one  but this fabric is a little more restrained it might suit a wearer who finds my other versions a little too bright?

I am contributing this to My Creative Space -  see what others have been tinkering with.

What have you been making for Chrsitmas gifts? Jams, pickles, aprons, socks, oven gloves?

  2. I do love your aprons. I have been attempting to make some limoncello, but it involves a lot of time steeping the rind in vodka and I have no idea yet whether it will work or not. Having said that lemon rind and vodka - can't really go wrong...

    1. Oh thanks, I like the onion one too. It is duller than the other fabric I have used but those onions look so fat!
