March Project -- Check (and giveaway!!!)

apron2

Modeled here by my patient and all-too-willing husband is the Cup Half Full apron from Anna Maria Horner's Seams to Me, March's Craft Book Challenge submission.

And then everyone else wanted to get in on the modeling action.

The pattern was awesome, as is the rest of the book. My only issue was figuring out where the 1/2 inch seam allowance line is one my sewing machine. (Hint: it's the 4/8 line. Coffee would’ve helped with that monumental insight.)

I love this apron but after making it, I had a ding ding ding moment: I really don't wear aprons.

I adore them from afar. I collect vintage ones. But apron-donning is not my thing.

So, if any kind, caring apron-wearing readers out there happen to fancy this apron, leave me a comment and it may be yours. It needs a good home! I'll draw a random winner at the end of the week and mail it out to you in time to bake up a storm of easter bunny cookies (or whatever your little baking heart desires!)

I would love to give your adorable apron a new home. I am just now realizing I'm a mess in the kitchen and aprons are not only cute but functional too! The fabric choice is fabulous. I could not have made a nicer one myself (and believe me I've tried).

Oh my gosh!!! I would wear your apron everyday!!! I love aprons, both collecting and wearing them. Which is a good thing since I'm a total mess when I cook!!

I wear cute aprons! When I remember, that is. But that one is unforgettable, so I should have no problem.

Are you sure the rest of you family is ready to give away said apron? Your hubby looked particularly fetching in it! Thanks you for a chance to win such a stylish creation. You are very generous.

Ryan will have to read this blog entry to see the great modeling job:) Your apron is so cute and I can totally see your husband wearing it everyday as he cooks and cleans, you should keep it. Just because you don't wear them, doesn't mean that he can't:) Really, it is so cute. I love your projects.

My husband might model an apron for me, but he would NEVER let me take a picture and post it on my blog! The apron is adorable! Great job!

Lorena said...

Oh, I love and wear aprons often! And I love that print. I made a great reusable shopping bag from it and have been wishing that I had bought more of it! How great would it be to have an apron to match my reusable shopper?!

How fab-u-lous! I would SO love to win that. Aprons are a pretty regular part of my wardrobe, but alas!I have no half aprons. This would be the perfect remedy for that!
