This apron was just finished up for a swap and sent out in the mail to it's new owner.
It's for a Hot Mama Fiesta Apron Swap hosted by Val in celebration of Cinco deMayo. Her rules were 1 apron, 1 Mexican recipe, and 1 other Mexican. I went with a bright orange, green, and yellow apron, 2 recipe cards, a box of Hot Tamales candies. I know, I know, the Hot Tamales candies were not very original at all! But I think the apron is kind of cute and bright for a Fiesta!!
Then a few weeks back I sent out a swap for Winter Baubles & Basics. The theme was to send kitchen towels and other items to refresh your partners kitchen. My partner wanted vintage with red, beige, and toile. Her is the stash I sent her.
I added lace to red kitchen towels. I made her a red toile print apron with matching lace from the kitchen towels. Also in her package was 1 rose flowered cup/saucer, red salad bowl, several kitchen gadgets, and a little salad recipe book I found at an outlet for $1, and a cotton kitchen towel with embroidery on it. She was so excited and surprised at all the goodies!!!
I received in return from her a set of bright colorful orange, green and white strip kitchen towels, a cute orange metal collander, a vintage glass taper candle stick, and a few other kitchen goodies. I have lost the picture of my goodies, but I loved my whole package too.
