New Apron

I made a new apron.

I strongly prefer my aprons to be made out of a heavy material so I can really get them dirty. They get worn for woodworking in addition to housework, so they need to be sturdy. This one is made of natural denim with vinyl straps. I masked out triangles with masking tape and painted them in with metallic acrylic paint. The straps are attached with grommets. The design was inspired by a tote bag I saw somewhere online. I’ve realized that if I spend the extra time to make utilitarian Items like this aesthetically pleasing (to me) I really enjoy them. The other handmade denim apron I have is over ten years old, and I still smile when I put it on. I’ll get a lot of wear out of this one.
