When I realized the package on my front step was from my swap partner, I was so excited to open it that I forgot to snap a photo. Take my word for it...it was packaged attractively.
As I removed the wrapping from the box, my eyes were greeted with an array of bright primary-colored tissue paper. I paused for a moment and wondered if my apron would have a theme related to my hobby of clowning. After all, my blog does have a photo of my alter-ego, Princess D. Clown.
I opened the enclosed envelope and read the handwritten note from Elisa. She told me that this was her first apron as well as her own design. She took a clue from my love of vintage sewing patterns and played with vintage design details on the apron.
Eagerly I removed the tissue to reveal my treasure and gasped with delight when I spotted it!
It is absolutely charming!
She also enclosed bright primary-colored tiny magnets and a coordinating "paperdoll" stuffie.
Elise - I'm thrilled with the apron you created for me. Thank you!
