Check Out These Aprons!!

Swap-bot swap: Apron Lovers Swap - Forest Friends

I hosted a Forest Friends Apron Swap on Swap-bot last month.

Kat was randomly assigned to me and she sent me the MOST amazing package!! Look at this adorable owl apron - isn't the detail amazing?!? I have found myself wearing this over and over in the weeks since I've received it.

Then, she tucked in the gorgeous frame with the sweet "lovebirds" inside. You may remember that Kat sent me THIS lovebird apron in a different swap recently - this is a little inside joke/nod to one of my facebook profile picture of my hubby and I. =)

She also MADE me this heavenly candle!

This is the apron I crafted for Tammy. I used my friend Lucy's The Sassy Apron pattern, and this adorable Woodland Friends fabric. I LOVE hedgehogs! And aren't the polka dots so cute with the toadstools (if I say so myself)?!?

Then this last apron I made for Val's Year of the Enchantment Swap for Sandy. The theme for the month is "Owls" but Sandy loves Halloween so it's a bit more spooky than I would have made normally. This apron is my own creation, inspired by several aprons I've seen online lately.

I really like this owl-ish print for the ruffle - I found it at Fabric Depot, on sale even.

OH! I am digging all these owl aprons. That first one w/the embroidered owls is to die for...as is your adorable hedgehog apron. It's been far too long since I've made an apron. I'm inspired!

Hey Shawnee, sorry I have been out of the loop for a month. Glad you liked the owl apron. It was quick and easy and of course reminded me of you and your hubby! Chat with you soon.
