Finding presents for men can be really difficult, so I thought I’d share this one with you. Mr D said yesterday that it was his favourite of all the things I’ve made him – and it was probably the easiest to make!
I traced round an old apron to get the shape. The denim I used was wide, so I cut it out across the width of the fabric and used less than a metre.
The fun was in adding the details – orange top stitching and rivets. The neck strap and ties are cotton webbing, left over from his Cooper bag.
I used navy bias binding to turn under the curved edge. All the other edges are double folded and stitched.
This was an easy and fun make, and it’s had lots of use already. Mr D is a keen cook – lucky me!
Have you any suggestions for manly gifts? I’d love to hear them – especially as it’s Mr D’s birthday next month!
