Summer Apron Swap

The lovely and talented Abby offered to host another apron swap. Little did she know that more than 200 bloggers with a heavy case of apron-itis would join in on the sewing fun! Bless her for organizing this summer swap! I love that she only tells us who we are sending our swap to and leaves it a mystery as to who will be sending a swap package to us. It leaves me guessing and excitedly running to the mailbox during swap week!

For this swap, my buddy doesn't have her own blog. But she lives in a place that fascinates me as I have never had the opportunity to travel anywhere near her home in New Zealand. So fun, right?! Yes well, please don't be offended when you open my package, Nikki. Because you see, I had a major blonde moment that lasted like two weeks regarding this swap. It was not until AFTER I mailed your package that it even occurred to me that you are not currently experiencing summer. I hope you will use the apron anyway...even if it's technically winter in your hometown at the moment.

One side of the apron is a fun red and black cherry print and the other side is green and white gingham. Both sides have a cute little pocket with darts and the fabric is a watermelon print. Oh, and pom poms. Why pom poms? Why not?! They just make life fun!! I also included a set of four fabric coasters and a little cookbook titled Taste of America. I hope she enjoys trying out some new American recipes while wearing her little apron. I am in love with that fruit fabric and can't wait to play with it to create a few more sewing projects this summer.
