The Great Apron Swap - What I sent to Steph

Well I'm back.
It's been a tricky few days but it all went OK and Grandma would have loved it.
So I am now back to blogging, work, life etc.. etc... etc....
I have had a message from my Apron Swap partner Step over at Mon Petite Poppet to say she has received her apron and she has posted about it here, so I thought I would show you what I made her.

I found this gorgeous fabric in one of my favourite fabric shops in Brighton and had to buy it for the apron.
It has ice cream Sundays all over it, with a red back ground with cherries & white polka dots.
I added a huge pocket to the front and trimmed it with a Daisy trim.
I made a double length waist tie so that it can be tied at the front with a nice bow all in pink gingham.
The back of the apron is also pink gingham.
I had a lot of fun making it.
I'm glad Steph likes it.
I have a few more swaps on the go, The Strawberry Swap, The Fairy Tale Swap, The Boudoir Swap & The Vintage Vacation Swap. So I will be a busy bee for the next few weeks.
Back to work tomorrow.
Have a great rest of the week.

Oh you made a beauty there!
So glad to hear that all went as well as could be expected for your family with your Grandma's funeral.
Maybe you should keep your eye on Freecycle for beds and other bits for unusual flower displays like the one at the garden centre!
