Apron Swap Sent

Here's the apron I created for my swap partner. Made from vintage fabric, (a flea market find I had been hoarding) and I used a vintage pattern from my Grandmother, then added some deatails of my own to make it extra special.













I also knitted a scarf in one of my favorite patterns.


















Then I made a jingly holiday banner. Very fun!









We had to choose a seasonal word and send an item for each letter. I chose SANTA and my items were
S- snuggly scarf
A- assorted chocolates
N- nostalgic holiday banner
T- three tea towels
A- apron
Here they are all wrapped up and ready to pack.


Now I just have to wait for my favorite part of the swap, hearing from my partner when she receives her swap package.
