Apron Swap!

May 8, 2010

Hello Buttercups,

What a week this was, started out with a ruined apron, on the day after I was supposed to mail it and ended with a new car…

I joined another apron swap last month, my first swap in over a year. It was great to be creating again and was I excited about the apron I had planned.  It took a while for me to make my apron this time. The theme was polka dots and my partner liked pink and black.

I decided I was going to make my polka dots with my embroidery machine. It was not hard to do but it was time-consuming. I was done with this little bugger and when I took it out of the washing machine there were little bleached spots all down the front of it…. My heart sunk and it was back to the old Bernina.

I didn’t have to go to the fabric store, my stash had everything I needed.

I was told my apron was for a 11-year-old lady, who loved to cook and was a little bit punk. So here’s what I made

I made it reversible so if she doesn’t feel punky one day, she doesn’t need to show it. She can just be polka dotty!

I really hopes she loves it and wears it often.

I, in turn received a fabulous apron in beautiful rich fabrics that’s fun and flirty.

It was Debbie, Miss Fabulous’ first swap and she scored an A++++.

I’m sure she’ll be a swapper for life now….

Don’t ya just love it!!!!

Well as I said in the beginning my week ended with a new car,  yep Momma’s got a new ride…

Now, how sexy is that!!!!

Well until next time,,,, sew on girl, sew on…..
