The Big Apple...

I was in Shawnee's 2nd Flirty Apron Swap. This time around, we had to make an apron to represent out partner's dream vacation.

My partner would like to go to New York for shopping!

I found this cute fabric that I felt represented shopping and made her a craft apron. She lives with her folks and is an avid crafter....but she didn't mention cooking at all! :-)


You can't see the little pockets but there are several of them that run across the front of the apron. I did a decent job of matching the fabric up to 'hide' the pockets.

I included the required things.....like the apple and a few recipes. I added a tote bag, bookmark and a crocheted apple cozy because she travels a lot for her job. I'm sending her a pattern of the one I used to make her apron. She is from Australia and I don't know if they get the same patterns over there.



I hope she likes it!
