Apron Swap

November 15, 2007 at 6:43 pm 5 comments

A while ago I had signed up for this swap over on Craftster and it was so much fun. After I received my swap partners information I had been slowly piecing everything together. It was alot of fun and in the end, I ended up with the most beautiful apron that I own. She really did an excellent job on it and I love everything about it. Even how the pocket lines up with the print of the fabric. Apron Swap - Received
Then, somehow, she had ESP and knew that I loved pomegranate (any form that it comes in). I swear, I did not tell her. Anyways, she gave me the BEST smelling pomegranate candle ever. I put it up in my bedroom and without it even lit it smells up my whole room. YUMMY! Apron Swap - Received
As well as those, she also gave me some handmade soaps. Apron Swap - Received
As well as some other little goodies.
On my end of the swap, I made her a reversible apron with a nice little pocket on both sides and then appliqued on some stars.
Side A of her apron Apron Swap - Sent!
Side B of her apron Apron Swap - Sent!
I also made her some dishcloths out of some cotton yarn I had. The pattern for the dishcloths I seen on The Carol Duvall Show. Apron Swap - Sent!
Then last but not least, I put together a little “fabric package” that consisted of the remaining of the lime green fabric, some of the black fabric and finished it off with some black ribbon that I figured she could use for one of her future projects. Apron Swap - Sent!
It was a very fun swap! Maybe (after the holidays) I’ll sign up for another swap over there.

    aw! Thank you!
    Yes, that was sorda the pattern that I used. I watched the show the day (or two) before I made these was going based off the top of my head. Mine is a little different than theirs.

    I CO 3sts, knit the first row, then k1, yo, knit across. If I remember correctly, I did it until I had 30 some stitches. It’s not a very big dishcloth mainly because I hate big dishcloths and I like ones that fit in the palm of my hand.

    Hoped that helped. If you have anymore questions, just contact me!

    Thank you too, for stopping by my blog.

    Let me know how it turns out.

    That’s usually how I find other blogs. A link from a link from a link, then I can’t ever remember how I found the blog in the first place.

    Oh, and now I remember, I kept increasing until I had 34 stitches. Then started my decreases.

    […] (that’s a good thing, that means they bathe on a daily basis).  And in fact, I made a few for a swap I had did last year, only those weren’t my modified […]
