An Apron for Giveaway Day!

Sew Mama Sew is having another Giveaway Day and I'm hoppin' aboard with this pear apron!


It's just your basic waist apron that ties in the back.  I used this summer-y pear and apple fabric that I've been hanging on to for just such an occasion.  The trim is solid red.


Here are some close-ups for your viewing pleasure:



Try not to look too closely though, because I am by no means a great seamstress...I'm still learning the tricks of the trade.  Anyhoo, if you're interested in making this beauty yours you'll need to know this stuff:

*Leave a comment for a chance to win.
*I'll use a random number generator to select the winner on Thursday, May 20th at 7:00 AM (PST).
*Please be sure that your email address is available to me because that's the method I'll be using to contact the winner.
*I will ship internationally so friends from near and far can join in the fun!
*I will send the apron to the lucky winner by May 24th....I promise!


Good luck and have fun checking out all the other giveaways going on in Blogland for the next few days!  You can find the list of participants here:

  40. The apron is so pretty and I totally understand about not looking too closely. I've sewn off and on for a few years and still have trouble getting straight stitches and dealing with the more complicated parts of sewing (i.e. zippers). Hence the non-perfectionist nature of my blog. :)
