My swap partner was Barbara. She told me that she loved the retro style and colors of the 30's. Her favorite colors were aqua and red. I wasn't able to find any reproduction prints in the correct colors to make her apron but lucked out to find this new fabric called "Vintage Modern" in the colors she liked. I used four different print/colors for the ruffles and then used three of them again for the waistband and ties.
Here is a close up of the colors, prints and florals so you can get a better look. I think this style of apron is so cute! Very feminine and sweet looking.
These are the things that I added in to her package as my tuck-ins. A needle case since she is also a sewer/quilter like me, some Mrs. Fields chocolates, Ghirradelli coffee, a canister of cookies, a small white porcelain heart dish for her rings and a little tea pot figurine that I thought was cute. I hope she liked them all. I had a lot of fun thinking of things to put in her package and picking out the fabrics that I thought she would like! It was another wonderful swap and a great swap partner!
