The Great Apron Swap 2010

Thank you so much Sarah from Red Gingham for organising this fantastic swap. I so enjoyed making an apron for my swap partner Damaris from 'within the corners of my kitchen'. I was chuffed to bits to be given a partner who lives in Santa Cruz, how glamorous and who has surfer husband also!! So here at last, I can reveal the apron made by me for Damaris.

I decided to make a more 'practical' apron than I usually would as Damaris is a foodie and thought she might actually wear it alot. This apron will also improve with age as the frill around the bottom section (which you can't see very well in this picture) will soften and the raw edges around the large pocket and applique will fray. I've also made the ties long enough so that you can wear it tied at the front or at the back.

This applique design was taken from Damaris's blog logo, but I put the half plate up the other way (like a bowl) so that it also created another smaller pocket. I then embroidered her name in what I thought was a very santa cruz surfy looking font......awesome, stoked, it's totally going off.......hehehehe:)

Hmmmm now for my next swap......anyone got any recomendations?

Claire that's a wonderful looking and very handy apron! It's amazing and you've done such a great job with all the little details. I love the fabrics too. Well done.
