more apron swap goodness

And this is the apron that I made for the swap, which I made for Sara:

I went with a winter theme and tried to follow her likes (sparkly, blue, not too foofy). I had some serious moments of doubt - first, when I got the giant snowflake fabric I began to think I was insane for coming up with this idea. Then of course, we were gone for a good bit of the month, and I didn't think I'd be able to finish it. But, somehow I did, and I was really happy with the final result! Here's a closeup of the under-layer with its loose snowflakes:

And here's a pic of the recipe cards and a few extras (a matching goody bag with gelt, and some rose tea for relaxing):

So all-in-all, two very successful swaps so far. Can't wait til the next one! (of course, I know what the theme is, hahahaha!)


  1. thanks! I was worried it was going to be over-the-top but when it was done I was really pleased. Well, maybe it is still a wee bit over the top... Still, I'm happy and I hope my recipient is too!

  2. Um, I'm sorry maybe you have said, but maybe you could tell me..where did you find the giant snowflake cloth? And whats the light blue layer made out of? Did you put in the snowflakes? Please let me know. I really like the design.
