Winter 2008 Package Requirements

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

Package Requirements:
Here’s a swap I have wanted to do all year! 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.

You will send your partner:
1. Handmade apron for your partner to wear this holiday season. Please embellish generously and make this extra special. Special fabrics are encouraged … silk, velvet, tulle, organza. A great source for special fabrics is thrift stores and then repurposing former prom or other special occasion dresses.

If sewing isn't your forte but you really want to participate, please purchase a handmade apron from one of the talented people at Etsy.com.

2. For a special add in, you will need to include something special for the Holiday Hostess to wear to her party: a necklace, a beaded bracelet, a fancy headband. Be creative, shop the sales, or make something sparkly yourself. Please spend between $5 and $10 for this part of your package.

Wrap it up nice and send it out BEFORE Thanksgiving!!

  4. What a fun swap idea! I can't wait to do this one. I was just thinking of making a "fancy" Christmas apron for myself the other day, so this gives me the perfect excuse to make two. :)

    Ok - sorry! I found the application form to join the swap. I guess it helps to read the post thoroughly - I was just mesmerized by the pics of the glitzy aprons!

    Thanks!
