Custom Order / Apron

On the 3rd of July at our weekly Village Fest event we met a woman who had her father’s apron for years. She wanted to keepsake this memory by repurposing it into something she would see on a daily basis.

We agreed to the request without seeing the apron but figured that if we use similar design techniques as we do our burlap potato sack pillows we should be okay.  Once we received the apron we realized that we would not be able to replicate our Potatoes pillow.  I forward the idea of appliquing the apron on a brown ticking while utilizing the interesting grommet and twill tape detailing at the bottom.

We also like the rustic nature of using burlap on the back so we incorporated this into the design.  With our upcycled designs, we try to have a concealed zipper at the bottom of the pillow.

I was really pleased with the final product.  The brown ticking gave interest to the pillow and the red print on the apron really make the piece stand out.  I was really glad we kept the grommet detailing since this allowed the pillow to have a unique quality and stand out.

Our client was happy to which makes our day. I love taking on projects like this since the sentimentally is evident and allows us to use our creative muscles.
