the red & aqua swap
These were made for the red & aqua swap, and are now on their way to the other side of the Atlantic. I decided to try out a new softie pattern, something simpler than the ones I usually make, and with some patchwork worked into it. Don't know how I ended up designing a bunny (or something that looks like a bunny) but for some reason it was the only thing I kept drawing...And I wasn't so sure about those ears, but now I love them.
The apron is inspired on the pattern from the Machine Made Patchworks book I, and I made it to match the softie. It's not exactly a very functional apron for cooking, I think, but maybe for crafting it would be nice. It has 3 pockets so if you're like me and tend to forget where you've put your scissors, or pins, this would be a good way to always have them on hand.
The colors of this swap are two of my favourites, so I guess that's why I enjoyed putting it together so much. And below, a few other things I sent as part of the package.
* cherry blossom glasses *
* children's book and 2007 diary *
* merino wool, fabrics and lollipops *
