I was recently in the Hippy swap, and my partner had requested a Gathering Apron as she has recently started growing her own veggies.
Having never heard of one before, I scoured the internet and my own allotment needs and came up with this idea Smiley
Id also like you all to hold in mind (no envy please Smiley ) that whilst coming up for ideas for this swap I was away in France, camping in my very secluded mountain top field. I think the design bears the influence of my time, and the fabric and lace was bought from the market there.



So the difference between an apron and a gathering apron, is its usefulness in carrying home your produce ! I made this possible, by stitching across the middle width of the apron to create an easy fold, and then using my favourite snap machine to place snap fasteners all around the outside so that you can turn the apron into a more hardy gathering accessory.

That is an awesome idea! The lace is gorgeous and so is the background.

The fabric is sweet and has a vintage feel!

I love your snap idea to securely hold up the working end of the apron...I generally tie knots in my apron to hold the veggies, and sometimes a few slip out for the bunnies to eat! Grin

It is lovely in design and execution...and lucky you to be in such a nice place for inspiration!

This is very clever. I like how it is long, so while weeding and stuff you can protect your knees, but then it can be folded for yet another function. It is the best when form meets function and you did a marvelous job of that here.
