Swap Registration HERE

Flirty Apron Swap IV, Winter 2008 – Holiday Hostess
Last Day to Sign Up: October 24, 2008
Last Day to Mail Packages: November 24, 2008

We are going to make glamorous, girlie aprons that you could wear to a festive holiday party to spice up a basic black dress for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Solstice, and/or New Years. You will make an adult size glamorous Holiday Hostess apron and your unknown pal will make one for you.

Please complete the registration form HERE and read the Rules and Package Requirement posts as well. With this new software, I can only take 100 registrations. So, sign up quick to guarantee your spot!

Here is one more thing I would like you to consider before joining this swap (you'll see this same information on Lucy's Sassy Apron Swap page).

To join in this swap you don’t have to be an expert seamstress, but you do need to be experienced enough to pull a nice apron off. We expect an apron that would pass in 8th Grade Home Economics - not an "A" but at least passable.

We don’t want to get too fussy here and scare anyone off. As Lucy says, I also love to see the work of new seamstresses and have had some as partners in swaps and have loved the work they do. It is fresh and full of enthusiasm. If you feel that your work is not good enough, you can also swap an apron made by another crafter. There are many at Etsy worth buying from. Just be sure to give credit where it is due and honor the apron artist.

Also, I've posted links to various patterns and tutorials on the right sidebar. I'll keep adding to that list as I find sites. EVERYONE can sew an apron; some of us just need to rip-out stitches more often to get the look we want! LOL!!


  1. won't let my submission go through! highlights my email address and phone number....even if I retype it still tells me there is an error! I want to join in the fun!

  2. It's doing the same thing to me. Shawnee, I'm going to email you directly.

  3. Nevermind, I figured it out. Dayna - did you fill in the last box? When I left that blank, it wouldn't let me submit my info, but as soon as I put something it there, it was fine!

  4. Hi, I think I signed up, but haven't received a confirmation. Did it go through?

  5. I filled out the form but I wanna know if it's the only thing I've got to to to enter cause I sure do want to enter this swap cause my first swap was at Yarnigras and I was hooked though I was scared to be let down I first but nothing bad happened. Cause you hear a lot of horror stories about swaps. But anyways count me in. larande2tall4u@hotmail.com
