I am working on putting together a program for my guild called “Apron Strings”. It will be a how-to make your own apron from scratch, i.e. weave the fabric, bias cut a binding, weave a strap (don’t judge me on my inkling – it is the beginning of the warp), cover buttons, etc. I am having a great time weaving this cottolin fabric using my very fine Brassard cottolin doubled in warp and weft – (sweet Doolie is helping me by providing vicarious afternoon napping by my loom). The fun part is that you can really go wild with color in an apron. You don’t have to think about whether it matches your decor (like blankets) or your solemn demeanor (like clothes). As all the color leaves the landscape for winter I am stocking up in the studio!
