Sissychrissy said she wanted an apron, so I used a circle skirt I had attempted before which came out too short for the base and went to town.







 I made a painting too...based on some vintage fabric I found at a flea market.

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

Very innovative! That apron has great coverage on the top.

I just painted my dining room hot pink, and I think a painting like that would look really fantastic there Smiley

My partner received, but I haven't heard back from her yet...hope everything is okay Kahluakiggy!  LOTS OF PICS TO FOLLOW!
(she has four kids, three who could use aprons--one is a toddler)
tablecloth which took me all of 10 minutes with my serger:


placemats--I stamped six with one a foam stamp:



I bought them on clearance for like 55 cents--I couldn't buy the material and make them cheaper!

apron for her...long so she could have maximum spill protection:



coctail apron:
no respecting suzy homemaker should be without one!



apron for one of her daughters:


apron for the other one:


apron for her oldest son:



pillow for her room:



apron for the dishwashing liquid  Grin



set of coasters and tray with florida on them--I have had them forever and since she had mentioned about loving the keys, I thought they would put her in a florida state of mind...



I didn't realize how much I sent...but I wanted to be sure that everyone got something...I don't want anyone to go...aww...I got cybilverbeana as a swap  partner....maybe I went overboard?? Huh

thanks alwaysinmyroom...I am feeling a little insecure about my abilities...

I couldn't leave anyone out...I made patches out of the black fabric to put on clothes for her youngest son...

i hope she isn't feeling serious anxiety...I didn't realize how much it was until  I started putting the pictures together...nothing took long at all...

I am laughing that you made an apron for the soap bottle!! Did you make stuff for any pets? ha ha ha

It is the personalization for your partner that makes the difference, not necessarily your skills or how much stuff...again, no one should have anxiety because I think these swaps are wonderful!
