Details of swap:
Have you been looking for the perfect apron lately? Then this is your chance to get one to fit your style! From crafting to baking to gardening to cleaning the sky is the limit for what you need an apron for!

To keep crafting as even as possible, I will do my best to match people who want the same size of apron. You will need to communicate with your partner about their measurements and desired lengths.

You do not have to send extras, but if you and your partner are ok with them then go for it, but they are not required in this swap! This should be a fun swap, and the crafting time is roughly 3 weeks, so plenty of crafting time.
Please make sure you post in this thread at least once a week so I know you are still with us.

OMG why is it taking so long? i will admit a little of my impatience is due to my addiction to buying fabric. Im waiting for colors and designs. Fabricland has a sale. I hope my partner doesn't want a plain black apron, lol.

You should join! We are at 11 people right now, and if it stays at an odd number we'll have one round robin group. I've been playing around with possible partner pairs and I'm so excited! :)

I'm still waiting to find out my partner's like to start planning, but finding a pattern could be a good starting point; i think anyone would love yours!

I'm glad so many like their partners! I tried really hard to give everyone a partner that was similar in wants and likes so it would be extra fun crafting!

How is everyone coming along with their apron? Has anyone started yet? Finished and off to the post office? Planning?

I'm still planning right now. I know what I'm doing, but I still have to go to the fabric store this week. :)

I'm still in the narrowing down to figure out which pattern or non-pattern I want to go with. Then the problem will come down to fabric. That'll be the hardest part. I have so many in my stash, yet I'll probably end up buying the "perfect" fabric. :D

I'm actually also checking daily to see if anyone's posted anything... but I don't write since others don't  :-\
So post post post! Hehe :P

Went shopping over the weekend. My local fabric store has come out with some new sprig/summer prints and I just found the best fabric for my partner!
I've got my basic idea figured out and I can't wait to start sewing... just as soon as I get my essays and exams out of the way  :(

My sewing room has been taken hostage by all of our belongings from our shed! The county said our outside storage shed was too big so down it must come :(  My husband thought that meant throw everything into the sewing room until the new shed goes up! lol It's ok though...he made a path to my table and machine! When I sit in there I feel like I'm a hoarder amongst all the plastic totes, camping gear, and fabrics and ribbons!! ;)

Well, I'm an idiot and totally forgot about Easter due to my kids having Spring Break last week and we usually go to my parents but this year I have to work all weekend so we're not going anywhere. Now I hope that the Easter Bunny visits our house because he usually goes to my parent's house. :)

For Easter, my husband wants to take us camping. However, it's supposed to rain and be in the low 40's all weekend. So if we don't go camping we'll be going over to his Mom and Dad's. :)

That makes me feel less stalkerish! ha ha. :D but I'm glad everyone's talkin now. good luck with your school work!

rae, I think as long as you actually still USE the materials around you, you aren't classified as a "hoarder" ha ha. ;)
who doesn't wanna camp in the rain though!? [I'm in Oregon... that's how we do.(;]

also, to make my post just that much longer,
my family always has a HUGE get together for easter, on my mum's side.
I have like... 50 first cousins or something. so we are rowdy and lowd. ;)

Hey y'all!!  Just finished up for another swap I was doing!

I hope everyone had an awesome holiday weekend! I went to so many yard sales it was crazy! :D

There are only a few people I haven't heard from in awhile, so if you also haven't heard from your partner please let me know. I haven't heard of any issues, so as of now I'm assuming things are going well.
ONLY 14 CRAFTING DAYS LEFT UNTIL SENDOUTS

Going to a little fabric store down the street from my house tomorrow before I go in to work.  Still trying to decide whether or not to buy new or use from my stash.

Still trying to decide whether or not to buy new or use from my stash.

I'm in the same boat. I went to my LQS today and they didn't have fabric that I wanted to buy. I asked if they could help me find some turquoise fabrics and the lady said that the owner doesn't like that color so she will not carry any turquoise fabric at all! We looked at some that looked like it might even have a little in until we got up close and no luck. :( So now I may have to go to a different city and go shopping, darn. lol


Title: Re: Make me an apron (SU Closed; SO 04/24)
Post by: raewolo on April 10, 2012 06:43:32 PM
I can't believe that she didn't carry that color! I guess one would call that a perk to owning your own fabric shop though....getting to pick what you like.

Aaaaaah! Deadline approaching way too fast  :o
But it's ok, no school/work tomorrow = sewing time!

Haha love that comment about the turquoise fabric hunt! Good luck finding some!
(How can anyone not like turquoise? o.O)

Success! I found fabric at Joann's today. Not what I originally wanted but I'm very happy with it and I'm sure beunruffled will be too!

I have to work for the next couple of nights but I may be able to get some sewing done tomorrow and Friday. ::fingers crossed::

I got some time this week to work on the apron, yay!
I think I'm about 50% done, and lovin' it so far! Still can't decide what to do on a few details, but that should figure itself out soon ;)

Fun story, I realized that I had no orange thread (small clue here :P) and ran off to the fabric store to get some. I planed to spend 2-3$ and ended up scavenging for scraps of fabric for other projects and spending 12$. Thank GOD my hobby is "cheap"! Even though I go 400% over planned budget I can still afford it with no problem ;)
(The same cannot be said for my boyfriend who's into photography and building computers *sigh*)

'Nough of that...
Happy crafting everyone!

I didn't get time to do any sewing this weekend. Hopefully tomorrow I will get the chance.

Don't forget that the deadline to send your packages is this coming Tuesday (04/24/12)! Also, if you are sending late please make sure to let both me and your partner know asap.

I am in the middle of an apron sewing storm! I'm trying to pull it together so I can take it to the post office with me when I go into town tomorrow, instead of making multiple trips :)

I should be able to get it finished this weekend and mailed by Tuesday! Keep your fingers crossed for an on-time ship!

Beunruffled, I hope you're tall-ish.  8) I finished the main part of the apron, I just need to get different fabric for the ties and it's longgggg. My 10 year old is about 5'2" and it's about knee length on her. If this will cause problems for you, let me know and I'll make a different one, don't worry about hurting my feelings, it'll get used here. That's what I get for not using a pattern/tutorial and just winging it.  :-[

I sent today and rgot my amazing apron. Is there a gallery yet? I couldn't find one but that could be because I'm having a morning.

Yes there is a gallery...We don't have any photos in it yet, so it has been bumped down the list...top of the second page in the gallery listings is where you'll find it :)

Beunruffled: Your skirt apron is on it's way. I'll be off to the post office in an hour or so. It did turn out way longer than I first thought... :-[

Raewolos apron is out for delivery! Is it weird that I track my sent packages more than my receiving ones?
