I participated in Shawnee's latest Flirty Apron Swap.
The theme was "I LOVE LUCY!" and we had to either use Lucy fabric or to be inspired by the show and come up with the perfect retro housewife package.
I kind of did a bit of both. I couldn't find any Lucy fabric locally but my partner's kitchen was red and white with roosters.
So I made her this retro styled apron by making an applique from one of my own vintage tea towels.
I added a matching kitchen towel and enamelware tin.....she collects enamelware so it was a lucky find. I threw the soda glass and straws in because I found this poster...
As you all know, Lucy didn't go ANYWHERE without her lipstick, so I had to add that to the package. The little crocheted heart pin is symbolic because Lucy's heart was ALWAYS in the right place....even when she messed up....which she did.....over and over again.
The journal is for when Lucy has some 'splainin' to do for Ricky! And we know she did LOTS and LOTS of 'splainin' on that show! (refer back to the 'heart' pin please!)
Lucy always had company so I just had to create some Lucy cupcake toppers... along with some party favors....
I hope she likes it!
