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.
