Pockety Apron Giveaway


My favorite sewing projects are those inspired by a thrift store find. Last week I found a large organdy curtain covered with pockets, except for the corner which was missing.

How about some aprons? I had more fun matching trims and scraps to come with up a whole line of Pockety Aprons. They are so pretty! And practical for tidying--sort your little items as you pick them up.

I have put six in the shop, but I am going to give one away--my favorite because of its vintage trim. Black and white is so stylish!

Submit a comment putting your name in the hat, and I'll draw a name on Monday, September 3 at noon.

The best thing about possibly owning a pockety apron will be my daughter silently peeking into each pocket as I scoot about the house :o)
Count me in!

Hi there
I have become hooked to your blog all the way from rainy England-UK. Your blog inspires and motivates me and makes me feel really happy-perfection can be achieved. I have been telling all my friends in UK about this amazing lady in the US who is perfect. I also have a cute daughter like your Daisy (mine is nearly two) and a keen photograher who is coming up to 6. My hubby will be in the US in early October so I am going to enter the draw in the hope of winning and you will be able to post(yes I am hopeful) to the US as opposed to UK!!!! Really enjoying your aesthetically pleasing, stylish and intelligent blog-from the heart!
