I do not work from patterns, everything I create is from my own imagination and totally unique.
Designer yarns are my favourite, I love creating unique items with that special designer touch!
Thank you for supporting British Crafters and buying handmade!
'Tied to the Kitchen' is a fun and quirky half apron made from 9 complete men's neck ties! Totally unique and quite a talking piece and totally up-cycled, so very eco friendly too!
The men's neck ties have been cut and placed side by side, with the narrow ends in between, to form an elongated patchwork of coloured stripes, then hand sewn in colour matching cotton. The waist band has been made using one complete tie, simply so that you can tie it around your waist.
To strengthen the waisted area, the insert material from the the tie used for the waistband, has been removed and sewn into place over the cut ends of the ties, leaving the remaining portions of the tie unpadded, ensuring that it is easier to secure into a bow.
The inside of the apron has been lined in a remnant of a pale pink tablecloth, sewn to the side edges, but left loose at the bottom. Hopefully you can make this out in the photographs.
Modelled on my 11 yr old daughter, but has been tried on myself and my 18 yr old 6 fit 3 inch strapping son, however, he refused to be photographed in it, but it secured well around his ample frame too.
Can be machine washed at 30'C and as with ties, ironed on the reverse.
Total Length: 28 inches or 72cms.
Belt is between 64inches or 163cms from end to end
One size fits most peeps!
