What's for Dinner Apron, Left Overs Skirts (Giveaway)

Sunday, August 2, 2009

Here it is, my first giveaway. I was wandering around bloggy world the other day and happened to find The Apronista. She was gearing up for an apron giveaway and invited others to join in. I decided it might be fun to see who would be interested in one of my little creations. Here is the apron up for grabs. I used what I had left of Paula Prass' butterfly fabric mixed with some others from the stash. This is the "Cup Half Full" apron from Anna Maria Horner's book, "Seams to Me." Here is a detail shot of the pocket with lace.

When I saw this in my kitchen, I hesitated to let it go. Hopefully it will make someone happy. Leave me a comment. Tell me your favorite thing to make for dinner (besides reservations) or anything else you have on your mind. I'll pick a random winner. (Don't forget to give me a way to contact you.)

Check out the other aprons up for grabs here.



Enough about the apron, on to the skirt. I used
Jona's pattern, the Evelyn Apron Skirt, from the wonderful Fabritopia. I love, love this pattern!!! The fabrics were all leftovers from this, this, and this. I love putting every last bit to use.

Here is a shot of the cute peek-a-boo border. The swan lace I was lucky enough to inherit from a friend that needed to reduce her stash of vintage fabrics and trims. Thanks Katy, you rock!

  4. I'd love to win your apron. I like the lace too. I wear aprons all the time. I love having extra pockets to carry things around. Plus I work at a bakery so the theme carries over at home. Thank you! I guess my favorite thing to make is pasta. If someone else is cooking, that's another story. :)

  15. I love this apron! Although if it comes to our home I doubt I would get to wear it as butterflies and pink are my daughter's favorite and she loves to help in the kitchen.

    My favorite thing to make is spaghetti! I use my favorite sauce and it cooks all afternoon in the slow cooker.

    IF you want, the recipe is here:

  38. I know what you mean about hating to "let it go." I had a hard time picking one of my vintage aprons for the giveaway, but it's awfully nice sharing with those who appreciate the gesture (and the work / love that goes into creating something by hand). My favorite dinner is grilled salmon -- with someone else cleaning the grill. Thanks for participating.
