Spring Apron Giveaway

My sister Jennifer recently had an important birthday.  I won’t out her on which one, even though she’s my younger sister, but it was one of those that deserves a little something extra.  That, combined with her new kitchen gave me the perfect excuse to re-visit an apron pattern I had attempted to create over a year ago that needed more work.  I spent a couple of months on it and made a mock-up, which my daughter promptly claimed.  Here she is, cooking out in the yard.  You know, like everyone does.

I had some perfect sarcastic 50’s housewife fabric, which I knew my sister would appreciate, so I made this one and sent it off to her.

I owe a big thanks to my niece, Alorea, for cornering her mom (and little brother) in the kitchen and snagging this photo for me!

I had originally planned to share how to make the apron today.  But I also wanted to give away the one I recently made.  A giveaway and big tutorial in one day was too much, so of course, giveaway first!

You can enter to win this springy little number:

I especially love the back.

To enter to win this apron, leave a comment here.  That’s it.  Super simple, whatever you’d like to say.  One entry per visitor.

You have until next Sunday night, April 1, 2012 at 11:59 pm to enter.  I’ll choose a random winner after that and announce who it is on Monday, April 2nd.  Please make sure there is an email address attached to your profile or included in your comment so I’m able to contact you.  If I’m unable to reach the winner within one week, I’ll have to choose a new one.

This contest is open to anyone, and international entries are welcome, provided your country has no limitations on whether you can receive items from the United States.

In case you missed it, my other giveaway ends at the same time – be sure to enter that one too.

I’ll be posting the tutorial for this apron next Wednesday, after the contests are over.  Get your printer ready and your sewing machine fired up!
