more swaps!

another swap finished! i changed my mind a bunch about what i wanted to make, but i finally decided on the apron from my longest year. i love that it's reversible, although i found the ties to be a bit on the short side. if i make it again, i will probably lengthen them. i like me a big sassy bow in back.

i used a print and a solid, and some jumbo rickrack, and i think it's really cute! my husband thought it looked frisky. the only concern i have is that the pocket is a bit wide. it gapes when it's hanging, but when it's on it lays smooth. and the pics make the colors look like they don't match! i included a recipe for french onion soup, and the latest issue of martha's everyday food magazine.

i like the first apron i made, but it's not reversible, and i wasn't loving the pockets. there are some really cool aprons in the flickr swap pool. there are supposed to be three more swaps this year, i am already thinking i want to do the emmeline apron. i have two super fabrics that i picked up last month, a pink paisley and a green floral.

i hope she likes mine! i can't wait to see what i get!

Cute apron!! I want to make the Emmeline too! It looks like it would be really flattering to my "curvy" (nice way of saying chubby) figure!

it's so cute and flirty. i saw on her website that her first printing has already sold out - but she has a new apron pattern coming out that's awfully sweet too.
