I am not the most adept seamstress around, but I am reasonably happy with the way these turned out. They are simple half-aprons, made largely from this tutorial Diamonds, Fur & Laundry 15 Minute Apron, although I did make a couple of adaptations to the pattern. For one, I wanted pleats, so I added those to the top of the apron before I put the waistband in place. For another, I wanted longer ties (so that anyone could use these aprons), so I used more fabric there. Still, I learned a few things on these and I think it will be relatively easy to make a third apron, and I have enough fabric to make one more whole apron.
So, to you, my bloggy friends, I am making this offer: I will give away a third apron, just like the two shown above. You can select either the green or the pink fabric, and if you want a trim other than the brown I've used you can tell me, and I'll try to find fabric in that color. I'll use a random drawing to select the winner.
To enter, simply comment on this post. You can get a second entry by checking out Melissa's paint colors and commenting on that post (anyone who's already done that who adds a comment here will get both entries). You can get three more entries if you link to this post on your blog (but let me know you've done that in the comments, please!). So, you could potentially have five entries in the drawing. I'll draw a winner on February 1st, to give people ample time to comment.
My disclaimer is, however, that I am not a professional seamstress. This is a handmade apron and it will look like a handmade apron. However, it will keep your clothes free of flour and such when you bake, and it is made of some pretty cute fabric. So, if you need another apron in your life, feel free to leave a comment!
