Gingham Aprons

  • Unit price per 


This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave two Gingham Aprons that were designed by Barbara Mitchell for Handwoven, Sept/Oct 2022, pages 60–62.

These aprons will bring back memories of gingham aprons from years past and the aprons we all made in our early sewing classes.

Woven gingham has no right or wrong side which means the fabric will be fully reversible. 

The sewing part of the project is as easy as the weaving, which make the aprons perfect as a first sewing project for your handwoven fabrics.

Yarns: Aurora Earth 8/2 cottons

We have made similar color substitutions for the Maurice Brassard 8/2 cotton yarns from the original pattern with our Aurora Earth 8/2 cottons.  

Equipment needed: rigid heddle or 4-shaft Loom; 28” weaving width; 12 dent reed; 2 shuttles; 4 bobbins.
