Someone(not mentioning any names) claimed me for burlap fabric in the ows and when asked how much I needed I told her as much as she was willing to send because I was going to make burlap aprons with whatever she sent.  And her response was basically that burlap is unsuitable for garments and blah, blah, blah!!! LOL  This is the second time in the past month that someone has told me a certain fiber was unsuitable for garments(the first was for a cotton knit hat).  Burlap is perfect for aprons!!  It is durable, has a wonderful texture and just looks cool.  And all of the aprons that I make with burlap are lined with cotton so the itchy burlap doesn't touch the skin.  I made these burlap aprons for my friend's coffee house and they receive compliments on a regular basis so I thought I would make more for upcoming holiday bazaars. 






And they look even cuter on the girls at the coffee house than they do on Dress Form Donna;)  Thanks for looking!!

I think the only reason you got some guff about using burlap is because it's not really washable at all and aprons are meant to keep your clothes clean. Also, a lot of people have allergies to jute which is what burlap is made of. They are appropriate looking for a coffee house though Smiley

I love your designs!  What cute aprons!

I was wondering if the burlap released fibers when worn...and, are they washable?

I use burlap for a lot of things but not clothing...I would love to make an apron with a coffee motif for a friend but she has some health issues so I would not want to aggravate her breathing in anyway...please let us know if they "fray"?

I also love your flower design as well!!  Nicely done!

Burlap is washable.  Molly has washed these aprons several times and has had some fraying(because I left raw edges) but she just snips the frays off and wears them. They did release fibers for the first wear but do not seem to now that they have been washed.

I had no idea about allergies to jute.  Thanks for schooling me CraftyMcCrafterson!!!

Thanks--I was betting that after a few washings they would be ok!!  That is great news!

I must try this...I do love the look and texture of burlap a lot!  Thanks for posting this wonderful new take on aprons!

wow these are so pretty and very cool-looking! I don't really have a need for an apron, but I think I'll attempt to make one of these now and then find a need for it later  Wink
