Handmade Gift Exchange

Well, hey there.
The last thing I posted was the first day of school outfit.  Uh... oops?  That was only about 3 (4?) months ago.  Yikes.  

Well, today, what we have for you is something in the adult realm-- a realm that I rarely set foot in, until recently.  

This year, just like last year, I participated in the Craftaholics Anonymous Handmade Gift Exchange.

This is actually my third time doing the gift exchange, as I did it in the summer, too.  It's soooooo fun.  

Side note: I learned from working with high schoolers that to emphasize a point, misspell a word. ;)

Anyway, this year, my partner was a foodie, so I went with a good ol' apron.  Well, I hope it was more than just a good ol' apron.  My goal was to make is functional, cute, and a little modernly retro.  I didn't get great pics, but here she is:

I found this vintage-y feeling rose fabric that I had been given and I paired it with some slightly more modern prints-- some scallops, polka dots and florals.  I'm hoping Amanda loves it!!

I love comments more than I love buying new fabric, and that's saying something. :)
