Craft Club: Make a Vintage Apron at Norden Farm + Free Worksheet Download

Last Thursday was the second of our Craft Clubs at Norden Farm Arts Centre.  It was the first where we had asked our attendees to bring along their sewing machines, we were a little unsure of how it would work out, but we had a great group of ladies and a really fun time. You can Download our worksheet here if you want to have a go at making one yourself.

Sewing up getting ready to gather up some ruffles.

Stitching the ruffles down.

As this was a smaller group they were all lucky enough to take home a copy of the latest Cloth Magazine.

This cupcake fabric was made for vintage style aprons.

 Stitching the top hem on the pocket before sewing it on.


Inserting the apron body in to the waist band.

 Getting the waist band in place, I love that this machine matches the apron.

Four of our Ladies wearing their aprons, don't they look gorgeous!

If you want to have a go at making an apron like we have, we adapted McCall's pattern 5284 which is a really cute apron pattern with a few different variations.
Or you can download our worksheet here.

Check out our 'Make It' tab for all of our upcoming workshops. Our next craft club is Embroidery artwork at the end of April, you can book via the Norden Farm website here.

  1. Love the aprons, might have to have a go at making one...I have loads of stash fabric just looking for a project.

    Wish I was closer to Maidenhead to join your craft sessions...looks like you all had a great time

    1. Thanks Becca-Lou.

      It would be the perfect project for a fabric stash!

      Wish you could come to our workshops too! Maybe we will come to a town near you soon!
