Sweet aprons..

I sent out my last 2 aprons of the year for swaps anyways.. It was kinda bitter sweet. I really have enjoyed swapping aprons and meeting new friends.. Believe it or not I never owned an apron or made an apron until March of this year.. Now i have made over 50 and I own about 35 crazy huh.. I love each and every apron that has been lovingly made for me and there makers. I have met some amazeing women swapping..
Now I just need to find a cool way to display them all , it's kind of a shame that I have hang most of them in a closet.. Anny ideas?
Ok so for the reason of my post I want to show off my last 2 swapping aprons that I made .

This apron was made for a gal named Lisa. Theme of the swap was Sweets for the Sweet..
I used this fun cupcake fabric and lined it with a pink and white polka dot fabric. I really like how it turned out I really wanted to keep it for my self.. But I was a good girl and sent it out:(

This number is for Lucy's sassy apron swap The theme was Christmas or winter I chose to make a cute reversible apron I made one side with red and white polka dots with ice blue trim and the other side is a cute Santa print (witch i just love).. I also trimmed it with the same ice blue as the polka dot side. I figured this way she could wear it all year long!!I am not a very good model for these aprons because they are too big but you all get the point. Maybe one day I will get some curves so I can fill out clothes a little better. Do think It would be wrong to pray for hips. LOL

You should start your own etsy shop and sell aprons!

You can take some of my hips. I have a bit to spare!

Too funny that you had never even wore one before. I really, really need to wear them as I make a mess when I cook at work (rarely cook at home). My grandma always wore one.

I like the Christmas one the best, the cupcake one would make me crave frosting and I'm not as skinny as you and don't need that lard added to my butt.

Those are so cute! I funnily enough don't own an apron which is weird now that I think about it!

I love the red apron!
I have no aprons, because I barely cook, but it would be cool to have red.

If hips are what's needed to pull off the apron look, I'm the ideal model. ;) Really cute aprons BTW!
