Cupcakes, Cherries, and M.E., Oh My!

Here's what I made for Shawnee's latest Flirty Apron Swap:
My partner wanted a cupcake apron, so I obliged. Here is a closeup of the fabric. I added a tiny slice of blue at the hemline, just for the heck of it:

The bib sports a 3-D cupcake. The frosting swirls are actually narrow, gathered strips of white cotton knit. The sprinkles are bugle beads, and the cherry is also 3-D with a beaded stem.

Here are some of the goodies I included. I also sent a cupcake purse pattern and a cupcake pincushion, although I didn't make the pincushion, but it was cute.

And I wrapped it all up in a tote bag made from M.E. fabric (to fulfil all the swap elements).
And here's what I got from my partner, Barb (Dogmom Diva)! It's fabulous! I love the full apron - and my husband thought it was wonderful, too!

And the goodies she sent, oh my! There are some cupcake candles and it's all I can do NOT to eat them, they smell sooooo good! Black Cherry, yummm! She even included some scented matches - I didn't know there was such a thing! She also sent some sweet ribbon, a rubber stamp, the cutest cupcakey tags I've ever seen, and this awesome, embellished tin - it's adorable and I will be storing something very special in it, I'm sure! Thanks, Barb - everything is terrific, and I've already worn the apron!!!
