Flirty Apron Swapping is done for the year

My participation in the Flirty Apron Swap for this year has ended with the completion of the latest theme, Frosted Flurries. For this swap you had to create a special Christmas apron that has a snowflake somewhere on it. In addition, you had to include tuck-ins, a gift for each letter needed to spell a word from the season.

I received this apron swap package from Paula. Her word was snow:

S - snowflake cup cozy
N -notecards
O - owl ornament
W - warm scarf.

Paula also included a few other goodies in her package. Thank you Paula for a marvelous swap package.

I made up a swap package for Alli. My word was hope:

H- hot pad
O- oven mitt
P- patterns
E- embroidered towels

I made a reversible apron with the Emmeline pattern. It was my first time using this pattern. I modified the pattern a bit by adding a pocket to both sides and sewed snowflakes on the pocket of one side. My partner likes woodsy-themed Christmas type decor like pine cones, trees, etc so I used two different pine cone fabrics that I actually had in my stash.

Oh Madelyn, the apron you made is gorgeous!!!! I love the fabrics you chose. One of these days I'll buy that pattern and try it.

What a spectacular apron you made and as always your tuck ins are equally amazing! You are so talented! You really spoiled your partner :)

You're very welcome! The funny thing is that Alli and I are friends - we actually work together - so I got to see the wonderful package that you sent to her first hand. Funny that I sent to you and you sent to her!
