Cheap Hot Mama Apron Swap

So earlier this week I received an absolutely adorable apron in the mail from Stephanie in the Hot Mama Apron Swap.

The overall theme was Cheap Hot Mamas. Meaning, you couldn't spend ANY money on the swap package. Everything had to be from your stash! Even the little extras couldn't be purchased. I loved this idea and had to jump in, even though I figured it would be a challenge. It had been while since I'd joined a swap.

My partner and I both chose to receive a "Wild And Crazy" apron. Here's the one I received. LOVE it! Thanks again, Stephanie!

And this is the one that I made for my partner. I must say I had an absolute ball coming up with this idea. I wanted to do something original w/o a pattern. I found some cheetah print fabric, came across the photo of the robot apron I made for an applique challenge, and got the idea for this apron. Hopefully, my partner will get a kick out of it!

Kellie! I am so lucky to be the one who got this apron! It's one of the bestest aprons I've ever gotten in a swap - truly, it is! And I love the mega-jumbo-super-sized ric-rac on it, and purple, no less! The cat and fish are so adorable. I love the wild animal print "underskirt." Thanks for the fat quarters, because my stash is sooo small (and I'm being TOTALLY facitious here - my stash is larger than you could ever possibly imagine, LOL!). I especially like the kinda geometric (cream background, blue, orange, yellow) stuff - I'm going to be hoarding that one! I'll email you in a few minutes....
Thanks again, and you others...eat your hearts out :-)
