Apron Giveaway

The other day I was perusing through the Goodwill store by my house and found some really cute sheets.


I really liked this orange stripy one...


...and it had such a pretty hem on it!  I wanted to do something special with this, so I hemmed the two sides, 


put ties and a waistband on (using fabric from another vintage sheet),


and added a pocket!



And this is how it turned out!


I'm not normally a huge orange fan, but I love how the fabrics work together and look so sunny and cheerful!  As my friend Jessy said, it's "a super thrifting win!"

So now on to the giveaway part.  I'd love to be able to share my apron with you!  Here's how you can have a chance at winning it - just leave a comment, and on June 15th I'll pick a random number and the author of that comment will win!  Only one comment per person, please!  But I will give you an opportunity for a second entry.  All you have to do is post my giveaway on your blog, come on back to my blog, and write a second comment telling me you did that!  Please make sure you either provide your email in your comment, or have it linked to your account.

Good luck!

  19. I agree with Jess, a super thrifty project. I love how the fabrics work together.

    PS Please don't enter me in the draw; I don't wear aprons. I'd much rather see it go to someone who would love it and use it.
