I got my partner yesterday for the Suzy Homemaker Swap on Craftster! So as long a you are not Miss Vicki, read on!
She doesn’t have a website, so I can’t point you in that direction, but I can tell you a little about her and what I might make up for this one. Like most everyone, things that she wanted were for the kitchen (I think that it’s so much easier to come with ideas for kitchen anyway) and she’s very into retro styles (especially the ’50’s) and color combos, Wonder Woman (she still has the coolest superhero costume even though Bret and I debate about that), and Greek Mythology (although, I’m not sure how to work that style into a home swap!).
After looking at her Wists list she seems to like flared or scalloped edge aprons (those half kind that tie around your waist like a skirt), so I’ll probably start from there. If I got really creative and could find the right fabrics, I’d make her a Wonder Woman apron. How fun would that be?
I was thinking that I could get some gold lame to make a belt and the ‘wings’ around the top. If I could find it, I would use a blue star fabric to make a shortie skirt on the bottom. OOOh, the creative juices are flowing!
Since the swap consists of one large and two small items, to go along with an apron, I was thinking of embroidering a couple of tea towels and making a matching potholder so that they would all coordinate together. Although, if I went with the Wonder Woman idea, I might have to rethink that. I’m not sure if I could successfully embroider that myself, not unless someone knows of one for machine embroidery that I could use.
