Fourth's Apron Swap



Here is Fourth's finished apron for the apron swap. Her swap partner is in Australia. We mailed it off today, with a few items to share our state and hometown!

Fourth picked chili pepper fabric because New Mexico is home of the chili festival in Hatch. She also picked out a cookbook of Southwestern recipes to send. Then we picked out several postcards that show New Mexico...White Sands, Carlsbad Caverns, and a Riastra. I really think that her swap partner will enjoy all that Fourth sent.

I had an apron pattern, but Fourth modified it all on her own, adding the ruffle. She then enjoyed experimenting with a variety of stitches. I think she did a fantastic job, and I can't wait to see the apron that she receives from Australia.

Thank you all for your kind comments. Believe me the apron looks small, But it fit me cozily! It is wrapped around her back:)

I am thinking of hosting a cloth napkin swap, where we each make six cloth napkins and then I pair up those interested!

So I must say that this was fun!
