Last Chance for Apron Swap!


Today is the last day for joining in...

Only ten hours left to sign up.  So far I have 69 lovely ladies all ready and waiting for their swap partner to be revealed.  I will try my hardest to get this info to you in the next day or two.  If you haven't received an email from me please let me know ASAP.  I am still waiting for addresses from a few people.  After you receive your partner, please email them and introduce yourself. 

There is a lot of fun to be had in making an apron for someone else.  There are so many lovely styles to choose from and then what colour do you pick?  Perhaps you'll want to discuss this with your partner or maybe you'll agree to surprise each other.  A surprise apron could be quite a laugh! 

If you are like me and have heaps of pretty fabrics, you'll be able to get started straight away.  It's always good to start when you are still feeling keen and excited.  It's not meant to be a drag, so try not to leave it to the last minute.  Have a look around your partner's blog for ideas.  Aprons aren't just good for in the kitchen either.  Some people like to wear them whilst cleaning, gardening or bathing babies, so the ideas are endless.

The trims are usually my favourite part.  They seem to transform an outfit instantly and you just can't have enough of them - only my opinion of course.  Applique is also great for jazzing up a plain fabric.

If you haven't signed up yet but are tempted to, please email me your address right away.  You'll find the details of the swap by clicking on the apron swap button on my right sidebar.  Oooh it's getting very exciting now!!

This sounds so great . I would love to give this ago the next time it comes around (when my sewing skills are a bit better, and when I feel a bit more confident about mixing colours together.). Your blog looks great. I just came across from Kiwi Mummy Blogs. Interested that you have 4 kids too. Have you been passing on your sewing skills to your older children? My kids would LOVE to make stuff. I just need to get my own sewing machine. (I'm a bit apprehensive about letting them use my mother's expensive sewing machine)All the best with the apron swap!!
