Apron Swap

My friend Becky (Sew In Stitches) and I did a little apron swap with each other.

This is the apron I made for her:

Four different coordinatng fabrics in shades of red and pink ~ I love playing with fabrics, mixing and matching and then adding some ric rac for a little extra whimsy!

And looky, looky what she sent me!
This oh-so-sweet waist apron!

The fabric is so vibrant!  It features fashionable ladies in the city.  I love it!  And Becky sent a bonus gift too ~ a pretty, little tissue holder:

Becky's a talented lady!  My apron fits me perfectly.

Our little apron swap was so fun that I'd like to do another.  I've seen swaps on other blogs but I'm not really sure what to do.  Any advice?

Both aprons look lovely, but I must say, I need one that covers head to toe!

Here are my suggestion for your apron swap. 1. Apply the Golden Rule; only send what you would be happy to receive from someone else. 2. Most important have FUN with it!
Smiles, Paula

I give up... it will not let me use AIM or Google - so just call me Tracy Anonymous Windsor :)

oooh a swap sounds fun, not sure how they work either ... I don't make aprons but, I do purses, bags, coin purses, pillow cases and I also make those little kleenex holders! maybe we could have a hodge podge swap -everyone that wants to participate throw their name in the hat and we draw names and and send one item to the person who's name you received.
