My Apron Swap Is On It's Way
With a wee bit of luck from the Irish, my apron swap recipient will love her package I put in the mail today. I didn't want to show to much of it on the swap blog, so I have posted the pictures here.
My partners favorite colors are pink and green, so I bought this canvas bag in pink & decorated it with a sunbonnet Sue and some Shamrocks. I used Tulip fabric paint to outline the cut outs and even got a complement from my hubby when he saw the bag.
Inside the bag will be the apron that is here & a better picture on the previous post. I sewed an extra large orange button on he front and attached the over mitt to the button. I added a dishtowel and 2 oven mitts as well as a hand made cookbook that has recipes and information from Ireland and New England.
Did you know a Banger is a sausage in Irish? I didn't. I finished the package by adding travel brochures to Ireland since my partner stated someday she wants to travel there. Perhaps now with her lucky bag and her travel brochures she will really get the bug to travel.
I tried to combine bits and pieces of her fantasy vacation so she could see them all!
