I love rustic looking fabrics, that have weight and look durable so had a bit of a shopping spree a couple of weeks ago. I bought some heavy woven cotton scrim in a natural neutral colour, some hessian (something I've wanted to work with for ages!), a few more linens and some embroidered cottons. All for various projects looming in my head. This is the apron I made from the scrim, I was inspired by an article from the Women's Institute of Domestic Arts and Sciences published in 1923.
It's simply a long rectangle with the bottom folded up to make the pouch. I secured it with a button I bought in India made from coconut.
I made two long drawstrings and threaded them through and around the button hole. The apron stuffs inside itself...voila!
So looking forward to the Spring now!
