ScrapHappy August 2020

I’ve been going to ceramic workshops on Tuesday afternoons; there are lots of old aprons available to pop on if you’re wearing something smart, but I never am so I don’t bother. I did, however, have the idea of making one for myself in patchwork, just for fun.

It’s not finished, still needs edging and ties, but I wanted to post today because it’s the 15th. The scraps are leftovers from plant hangers and cushions, and in better light the oranges, reds and greens show up much more brightly :)

    Oooh, love it! I especially like the orange and yellow strip up the middle, and also the apple green with pale branches on it. You do have some really gorgeous scraps!

    What a fabulously fun apron to wear in ceramics or anywhere else one chooses an apron. Lovely bit of art.

    I love, love, love it. Are you going to add some pockets? Or a big one straight across the front would be cool. Have fun finishing it up and I can’t wait to see it. :)

      I would have added a pocket if I wasn’t only going to use it for ceramics, but maybe I will anyway – it might come in useful if it turns into a garden apron. Or if people express an interest in having one of their own…
