Fall Sassy Apron Swap
My very favorite time of the year is Fall. I love everything about it...the crisp mornings and sunny daytime, the leaves of the trees turn brilliant shades that only God could have created, there are pumpkins round and fat in gorgeous shades of orange. It is a time of harvest and thankfulness. Did I mention I LOVE Fall!
You may have noticed on my sidebar the Sassy Apron Swap icon. Lucy is holding an apron swap for each season and we have now come to the swap that I most anticipate: the Fall Sassy Apron. Lucy's requirements for this swap is a handmade apron incorporating a fall theme, must be a full apron that would cover "all our bits" when we are baking our pies for thanksgiving, and we are also to include a handmade pot holder to coordinate with our apron as well as a recipe for our favorite pie.
This is the apron I made and sent to my secret Fall sassy apron swap partner. I hope she'll like it! I couldn't resist this pumpkin fabric with the contrasting orange fabric. The flounce and off angled pockets with big black buttons was just the look I thought would be perfect for a fall apron. I used a McCalls "retro" pattern. Each of the views were fun and sassy. This will definitely be a pattern that I'll enjoy using again.
I'm eagerly awaiting my fall sassy apron from my secret partner. I'll post the apron she sends to me when I receive it. These swaps have been so much fun. We've swapped handmade aprons with theme over the entire globe.
Next swap will be the Winter Sassy Apron swap and Lucy knows I'll be first on the list to sign up. :)
