The Great Apron Swap 2010

Afew months ago I signed up for the Great Apron Swap hosted by Sarah from Red Gingham.  I was very excited to be partnered with Julie from Swedish House - my apron would be going to someone on the other side of the world!! 

Well I recently received the apron that Julie made for me and what a beauty it is!
Julie described it as a crafting apron, and to me that is exactly what it is. 
Something to wear while I'm crafting up a storm - perfect for keeping off those pesky bits of thread which seem to have a habit of clinging to my clothes, and pockets to stash scissors and the like so they are always near to hand!

I really love this style of apron, and the embellishments.

I mean how cute are those two little birdies cut from vintage fabric.

And the love heart is just perfect.

But best of all I love the Sweden badge. 
Every time I wear this apron I will be reminded of how far it has travelled, made especially for me,
by someone I've only ever met on-line.

I gave a sneek peak of the apron I made for Julie back in May;
here it is in all it's glory!

Thank you so much Julie, I hope you love your apron as much as I love mine.

And of course a big thank you to Sarah for hosting and organising this swap


  1. I so wish I'd put my name down for that swap - I'm green-eyed over all these aprons that crop up every now and then. Most especially loving the Sweden badge!

  2. What wonderful aprons ladies! Really they are both so beautiful you clever things. Love the little birds appliqued on. I think a craft apron sounds like a very good idea.

  3. My Apron is absolutely gorgeous, wonderful marvellously made I LOVE IT! Thank you Fran.
    I am happy that you like your apron too ;-)
    I am just about to send you an email explaining
