Crafty Cooks Apron Swap...


In March, I signed up for the Crafty Cooks Apron Swap, run by Fiona, from Celtic Thistle Stitches and Sam, from A Cup of Tea and a Slice of Cake. If you've been reading Threading My Way for a while, you may recall that I have said I don't cook, as Mr TMW does all the cooking, so you may wonder why I am participating in an apron swap. Well, I have started to cook again and my aim is to produce something edible once a week. 



With the exception of the waist and tie, the fabric is Flea Market Fancy, by Denise Schmidt. The apron is reversible, but I forgot to take photos of the other side, so that will be a surprise, partner.


I used the following two tutorials, adding a little extra to the width. I hope it's a good fit.


Everyone in the group stressed that they wanted a favourite tried and tested recipe. My repertoire is rather small, but tucked inside is a tried and tested, failsafe recipe. If I can make it, anyone can!!!


Your apron has already been posted, partner and is on its way. I do hope you like it!

I'll be adding this apron to the Apron and Art Smocks link party here on Threading My Way.

  2. It look like not just an ordinary apron, for me it is also a skirt. A very fashionable apron skirt!

  7. I love the bright prints! Are you going to show the apron you receive once it comes? I'm anxious to see it.

    P.s. I cook every night, and still only manage to produce something edible once a week.

  16. I never stopped wearing [and making ] aprons even when most of friends stopped wearing them. They have saved loads of clothes.
    Love this apron love the swap aprons idea ,,,,,
    p.s. i made a Fiberart apron that relates to a certain cook book which was printed in Israel in the 1960s ,,,, with a strange text.
