Here it is! I really love how it turned out. If you read my earlier post I had grand plans of duplicating the flowers and sprinkling them about the layers to give it a 3-D appearance. I tried it, but the flowers made it look too heavy, and I was also afraid it would be impossible to iron. I may try it again in the future -- the flowers came out beautifully, by the way, so I highly recommend those books -- but on a less-grand scale. I also love the Shiva Paintstiks; another tool for future projects.

Everyone has posted such beautiful aprons, and I have to confess that each time one was posted I was hoping that one would wind up on my doorstep. My own swap apron arrived yesterday, though, and I absolutely adore it. It was made by Tiffaney C., and she really should have the pleasure of posting the picture. Shawnee, this was a fabulous swap theme, and the people involved really produced some incredible aprons. Thanks so much for the work you put into running it, and thanks to all my fellow swappers for sharing their creativity. I'll be borrowing your ideas to spice up my aprons in the future!

  5. Thanks so much for your comments! You all sew such wonderful aprons; your opinions really matter to me.

    Ann -- it's never too late to learn, and it'll be a lot easier and more fun now that you don't have to worry about getting a good mark on your report card. Good machines have come way down in price, and you might even be able to get free lessons in your town. What have you got to lose? Join in!!!
