Thought I would share a bit of the making of my aprons. Since they are my own design and because I exclusively sell them wholesale at this time, I will not share the pattern. At the end of this post, I will share a picture of my latest design for the celebration of the store's anniversary.
The buyer and I pick the fabrics together, then the pocket material is sent out to be embroidered. In the mean time, I sew up the aprons; here a mother and daughter set, without pockets.
When I get the pocket material back I finish the pocket, making sure that it is lined, protecting the embroidery.
Next after attachment of the pocket, I add the straps. I usually use cotton webbing, so I apply fray check to all the cut edges. Since they have to dry, they are secured with a pin on a thread spool for air drying.
I add D-Rings:
A finished apron:
I add my custom tag designed exclusively for my buyer. (I also add my company iron-on tag on the inside of the apron.)
The ones you see here have gone to the shop and some are already sold!
Now, besides the afore mentioned special order, I am working on the aprons for their anniversary sale--a new design! If you have seen the previous post or know about Bob's Red Mill, you know that their brand color is red! And since they sell grains, this fun design is what we have come up with for the anniversary!
