This is my most popular post (thanks to Pinterest!) so thought I’d put it out there again for those of you that did not see it previously.
One of the downsides of doing pottery is the mess…unless you have an awesome pottery apron that keeps the dirt from overwhelming your outfit (and I use that term loosely, as I NEVER would call what I wear to the pottery studio, an “OUTFIT”-LOL!!).
At any rate, I do love a good apron and am always on the lookout for the next big thing.
I checked them out at NCECA in April, 2013 and found some great ones.
But the best apron that I’ve found was in a sack of rags from the lady that I bought the kiln from. As she had me load up “everything”, I took a bag of rags and in going through them found this old, but fantastic apron. See video here (I apologize now for this very cheesy video):
I made a pattern from it and made a few minor changes and have made several since. You can actually pull it over your head, no ties, no need for clean hands, and it splits in the middle, so it is perfect for throwing. I make them out of curtain fabric that has a light rubbery lining-helps to avoid too much soakage!
Made one for Adriana Christianson! She loves it!!
My obsession with aprons has caused me to lose my mind it seems. My most recent creation came about as i looked at some car seat covers that my husband took off his jeep seats. They had so many pockets, velcro enclosures and were actually in good nick. I just couldn’t help myself! ….I made an apron out of them! It actually works great-glazes and water practically jump off the fabric it is so repellant. Ok, it’s true…I’ve lost it!

Pot on, but don’t go crazy!
