Description

I was part of the Mystery Swap where we had a choice of picking a smaller envelope (6"x12") or a large envelope (12"x14") and filling it with a surprise for our swap partner. It was up to us to decide what to make for them and we were pointed to their studio to get ideas.

My swap partner is +Chrissybugs and she just went all out on the cuteness factor. She made me a darling apron with the prettiest teal blue pocket and oh so cute ribbon for the straps. And because she has an amazing industrial embroidery machine she embroidered my name on one side of the pocket and a cute pattern of spoons on the other! I think this may be the very first thing I've ever had customized with my name on it! But that's not all. She included this cute cute fabric, a little note book (I LOVE to write notes to help me remember stuff I see or hear) and a little trivet/mug rug that she made out of string and sewed with varigated thread (think of the coiled rugs but on a daintier scale.) And oh yes, some kleenex that is far to pretty to dirty up with snot!

What a treat I had opening up this package after a crappy week at work. Thank you sew much Christine for your wonderful gifts!!!!

Too cute! I love the spoon theme. I think this would brighten up any day.

True I know right? I think I'll wear it while sewing to keep my little tools close at hand. You know, the ones you're constantly looking for under the piles of fabric?

Terryt1955

Drnic2c I just love the spoons too! Chrissybugs did such a nice job!

Joke

Terryt1955

Thanks True ! I never considered myself that big of a bird fan but now it seems whenever I see a bird preint I'm drawn to it. Especially if it's bright cheerful colors! I went back and got another yardf of this because I know I'm going to make another bag in it.

Kruppcake

These are fantastic!

Terrysim

I LOVE that bird print, Terryt1955 ! Can you tell me what it is?

Terryt1955

Terrysim sure, it's called 8042 13 Going on Thirty by Maywood Studio. Isn't it cute?!

Chrissybugs

OMG. I can't believe I left the price tag on the lil notebook! Another space cadet moment!

Terrysim

Terryt1955 : Thanks! I'll see if I can add it to my stash right now.

Terryt1955

Don't worry Chrissybugs it was the kleenex and I didn't notice it until after I uploaded the picture. I was in such a hurry to post my haul that I didn't want to take another picture!

Terrysim I got it at Beverly's fabric store but I think they are only in CA? Not to say you can't hunt it down on the internet.

Terrysim

I didn't find it in the Threadbias stash database, so I will have to search the internet. Thanks!

Terrysim Actually $6 a yard as they list them in 1/2 yard increments.

Terrysim

Terryt1955 - You are amazing! Thanks so much. I will check it out right now. (Never heard of thefind.com before. Is it just for fabric?)

I found it when I did a google search for Maywood Studios.It looks like it's for anything.
