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 *

Gosto imenso do teu trabalho. E estás a espicaçar em mim o bichinho das trocas. Tenho q um dia me fazer a minha primeira swap!
Bom trabalho!

Suzanne said...

Eu fiquei com o bichinho das trocas desde que leio o chocolate à chuva! Até agora participei na Mag Swap, de que tive conhecimento pela Tânia. Mas como não tenho blog fica difícil participar numa swap! :( Se alguém tiver conhecimento de swaps em que não seja obrigatório ter blog, por favor avisem! Pedido especial para ti, Tânia, que és uma verdadeira conhecedora destas coisas e fazes swaps fantásticas!

irisz said...

i love your rabbit, it's excellent!!

Caterine said...

i have the same glasses. they make beautiful shadows on the walls when you use them as candle holder. are you enjoying your encense?

psique said...

Bem, Suzanne, visto que ainda não nos estreamos na swap podiamos faze-lo juntas. Eu tenho blog mas penso q a swap é mais universal, por isso não é necessário ser entre bloggers.
Agora a Tânia é que poderia sugerir as cores, não achas?
