ooh! so tempted!! I love the ones in the picture. I have to see what kinds of Halloween fabric I can get because I don't have many fun fabric stores near me. Last time I had to order online and I hate paying for shipping.

I'm in Australia and while I like the look of those aprons I don't know that I'll be able to find halloween themed material either...

I usually buy themed fabric online. I do have fabric stores, but there is soooo much more online! It is a USA swap only b/c of how close Halloween is, so I think I put enough time in there for getting a fabric shipment and some crafting time! hopefully  Wink

I don't like paying for shipping either, but some of my favorite places offer free, or half price shipping sometimes, and as long as it is reasonable I don't mind too much. I figure it is cheaper than me driving to all the possible places I could located certain fabrics!

fabricshack.com offers half price shipping sometimes (usually ~$3, depends on how much you buy) and fabric.com offers free shipping over $35. joann.com has free shipping over $35 usually if you have a code, I always do a quick search for things before I ever buy online.

Oh, if I weren't already making a full apron!  I'll look forward to the gallery.  Thanks for the tip about looking for fabric online.  There isn't a lot in the stores this year that I like.

I am thinking about signing up. I think it would be fun. I love Halloween usually. I just don't know if I want to celebrate this year because I got married on Halloween and my husband just left me. So I may sign up. I don't know yet.

Well, I don't really have a lot of money right now, but I have a lot of fabric (I have a bit of Halloween fabric, some Halloween colors I suppose), I also have lots of felt, so I can stitch cute lil felt things on for decoration, an unholy amount of beads, I'm not the best in the world at this, but I can embroider, so hopefully I could make a cute apron with what I've got, and if need be, I can make an emergency stop to JoAnn fabrics and pick up some Halloween fabric or other oddities, so sure why not? I'll send my questionnaire and hope I survive this, the other swap I just signed up for, and all my school stuff and extra curricular activities lol.
A half apron won't take me very long (even though I'd probably hand sew it because my sewing machine tweaks out so much) so I'll definitely join =)

I actually don't sew, but have been trying to get my husband to teach me for some time now. I told him about this swap and he is going to help me with crafting for whoever is LUCKY enough to be my partner, lol!  Grin
