My crafty giveaway.

You asked for it.
Technically you didn't, but I really want to.... What you ask?
I'm going to have an
apron giveaway.
Oh come on be nice. I know I am using "Sewing for Dummies", but I think someone will enjoy it. In reality it is a piece of cloth that is designed to get dirty in order to keep the nice stuff from getting icky.

Here's the fabric...
The finished product will be displayed later...at some point...when it's finished.
Here's what you need to do in order to win this fabulous apron.

Leave a comment answering one of the following questions: Do you sew? Do you wear aprons? Did you make the apron you currently wear? If not, where did you get your apron? (One entry)

If you want extra chances at winning:
Grab my button (one entry)
Follow me (one entry)
Blog about this giveaway (three entries)

Remember every artist has to start somewhere. You never know, you could be the winner of a coveted item from an up in coming Super Star Fashion Icon.... or not. (Smile) This giveaway ends on the 13th of January.

Disclaimer.... I was threatened by sharp needles and nearly strangled to death with thread to do this giveaway. I was forced to make it sound like the best thing ever.

Oh yay!!! I so wanted an apron for Christmas and didn't get one!!!

Yes I sew. My Grandma taught me how one summer (as well as needlework, knitting, crocheting, etc).

I don't have an apron, but WOULD wear one!

Eva Gallant said...

I used to sew all my own clothes when I was in my late 20's and early 30's and wasn't working full time. I haven't yet gone back to it since retiring.
I don't own an apron, so I really need to win this. lol

Thank you for visiting my lil' ole blog and for the welcome! I love give-aways, although I am never lucky....ha! I do sew, and am gonna follow as soon as I get through with this comment, and grab your button, oh and also blog it! Thanks for the opportunity!

Mama M. said...

Okay...so, I hafta be honest...I saw your comment on P-Dub's site, and just had to stop by!

She was in MN...and Canada is practically MN right? (Okay, okay...I know Canada stretches the entire length of the US, but I still consider all of Canada to be an extension of MN!!)

Oh, and score for me! You're havin' a giveaway! Okay...so, my answer...I don't sew. I CAN'T sew...I would lose far too much blood if I tried to sew!

Megan @ Little Bella Bean said...

So cute! I bet it will turn out great. I do sew, I have made several aprons, yet I gave them all away, so I don't wear one I made! I have several aprons, purchased from cute tea shops, a second hand store, and a kitchen shop. I love them all!
=)

greedygrace said...

It's funny that you're offering this, since I was just on Etsy looking at aprons!

I sew a little. Nothing fancy. I can make curtains, that's about as fancy as I get.

I just bought my first apron because I was hosting Christmas Eve dinner and I wanted to have a cute apron. I bought it at a specialty kitchen store. It's a super cute retro half hostess apron, but it was $35. I feel I could have made one for less than half that amount!

Thanks for the chance!

greedygrace said...

Oh, and I follow you!

greedygrace said...

And I have your button!

mary said...

I do not sew, but I should start.

I do wear aprons though. In fact I wore one all day today. (made by my mom) I may not have inherited her sewing ability, but at least I cook and bake like her!

mary said...

I follow.

mary said...

I have your button.
I'm new to your blog. Looks nice!

I love aprons! No, I don't sew - it's sad, really. I do wear aprons. Mine now is white monogramed with a pink "K" (for Kelly). My mother bought it for me for Mother's Day last year. Thanks for the chance.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I do sew and my current apron is from IKEA.

Stephanie said...

I follow with Google Reader (just added your blog). Does that count?

Brooke said...

Thanks for inviting me over! I've been looking for an apron and haven't decided to take the plunge just yet. I also didn't get one for Christmas :( But I need one - I bake a lot and I could use an apron.

Ann said...

Yes I do sew and it is my passion currently. I do wear an apron, it was a gift from my mother in law last year for Christmas. She picked it up at a Shakespearean festival. But it is time to turn it in and start wearing this one you are about to make me. : )

TXsunlover said...

No, I don't sew but wish I could.
Yes, I do wear an apron.
No, I did not make the apron that I'm currently wearing.
I got it as a gift from my sister for my birthday several years ago and it is well worn.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Very pretty fabric choice! Margaret from SITS

Jill said...

I am sewing impaired, even straight lines elude me.

I have several aprons, but usually wear the red one Michelle made for me a couple Christmases ago. I am such a messy baker.

Mothers' Hideaway said...

Thanks for the SITS welcome!! I do sew, though not always that great. It has been quite some time since I've even picked up a pattern, though I do have an apron I made when I was pregnant with my first child!


I am following your blog :)

Answer to question: Do I sew? No.

hahamommy said...

Do you sew? **I am capable, though I've not yet found the perfect project (outside of pillows and altered t-shirts) to get me into the groove... Aprons have been calling me!
Do you wear aprons? **I do! As a baking goddess, I find them imperative!
Did you make the apron you currently wear? If not, where did you get your apron? **I did not. My current favorite, I bought myself for Christmas: big pockets and says reuse, reduce, rethink, renew, recycle. My previous favorite was a gift from my "Fairy God Parent" at last year's unschooling conference.
**Inspire me!!**

Pricilla said...

I will sew as soon as my house is finished and I can get my machine out of storage.
I have a collection of aprons; most have been given to my by my goddaughters as gifts through the years. They know I love to cook and they have sent me one for every holiday. The Halloween one glows in the dark!

Thank you for coming by my blog! I am excited to see what SITS is all about. I love your apron! I wish I could sew so for now I'll live vicariously through your projects. Hope you're having a super week!

I do sew but I don't wear an apron. Mainly because I don't have one which would make me the perfect winner!

Ace said...

I follow you now!

Amy @ Cheeky Cocoa Beans said...

I sew but only by hand, which is good 'cause my aunt has been "borrowing" the sewing machine I was going to learn on for, oh, about 2 years now. ;) I saw the finished product and it's a gorgeous apron!

Darcel said...

I don't sew, but am going to learn how to this year. I need to wear aprons,especially with my ever growing belly. Food is attracted to the baby belly!

Divas 3 said...

"I really need an apron!", I say that every time I cook. I don't sew, I've tried but I couldn't sew a straight line to save my life.

Momma Pixie said...

Fun! Can't wait to see the finished product. I've vowed that this next year I will be making all of my Christmas gifts. I do sew but I'm not great, maybe that would be fun to work on though! ;)

Tricia said...

I would love to win this one. I only have holiday aprons..... so an every day one would be great.

Tricia said...

opppsss I am so sorry you can delete my last one... Here are your answers

Do you sew? Yes have since I was little
Do you wear aprons? Yes if I had an every day one I would but only have holiday ones right now.
Did you make the apron you currently wear? Nope a friend of mine did.
If not, where did you get your apron? From a close friend but it is a Christmas one.

The Pleasures of Homemaking said...

I have a lovely collection of aprons. I try to remember to wear them LOL! I really should wear them. I sew a little. I'm going to try to sew more this year. Your apron is cute and I love the fabric.

ANewKindOfPerfect said...

It is so pretty! I would love a pretty apron. I actually JUST got a sewing machine, before Christmas. I made a small quilt! That's all I've learned to do. I was just telling a friend of mine that aprons should be fun, so we are learning that next. :) I would love to win your beautiful apron, as an example!

Queenie Jeannie said...

Lynn said...

I like to sew but not all fancy doo with a machine or anything like that. I have a big ol tote bag that is the stuff that needs to be sewn bag and I lug it around with us on any road trip longer than a half hour! I love aprons and got all the ones I own from my mom.

I also follow you.

My best, Lynn

minishoes1 said...

I do not sew but I have always wanted to. In jr high school, in sewing class, we had to make pillows-but that was pretty easy. I have 1 apron that is black and has white dots on it and ruffle on the button. My aunt wants it-so I am hoping I can win one for myself.Thanks! jacquecurl1@gmail.com

brandon and jakell said...

I "try" to sew when my sewing machine will work with me LOL
I sometimes wear aprons, usually forget. They have been gifts or store bought. never attempted to make one. I would love this one. So much cuter than my plain white one and plain red one. thanks!
