Apron Giveaway

Last week I mentioned an apron giveaway. I had so much fun making one for myself that I just kept sewing more, and now I have a couple I would love to give to someone.

The first one up for grabs is in the style of the clothespin apron from the 1928 Simplified Sewing booklet. It's made from a Darlene Zimmerman 1930's reproduction print with a western theme. It's 100% pima cotton.

Here's a closeup of the print...
The other apron available is a modified version of the clothespin apron that I made for myself, and is made in vintage fabric. Even though the pocket is smaller it still holds plenty of clothespins if you should want to use it for that. And of course you don't have to use it just for clothespins.
Being vintage, this fabric is not as sturdy as new, so you might need to treat it a little more gently. There was a small hole which I covered with a handsewn patch [below]. It's not perfect, but hopefully useful to someone.

If you are interested, leave a comment or send me an e-mail and specify which apron, if you have a preference. If more than one person is interested in each, I will have a drawing for each apron next Friday so you all have a week to let me know.

Have a great weekend everyone!

    I just found your blog today (6/21) although I see your name in comments around the blogosphere a bit. I noticed your name especially because I'm a Deb, too, and sometimes wondered if I'd already commented and didn't remember! LOL I just never came over until I saw your comment on Susan P's new blog. Anyway, looks like you have a neat blog to check out.

    If you don't mind a newcomer entering your apron contest, I'd love to be entered for the 2nd vintage one! Thanks!


Thank you for taking time to leave a comment--I love reading each and every one! I will try to answer any questions you have in the comment section. Due to the amount of spam, I am sadly no longer able to accept Anonymous comments....Kindly, Deb
