Happy ONE YEAR Blogiversary w/ Giveaway!!!

Giveaway is closed

Okay, I admit it. . . this is actually a bit late. Well, about 3 days late actually. I started blogging last year on August 6 so the actual blogiversary was Friday, but I didn't have anything to give away to all you lovely people so I waited until today to celebrate. You don't mind do you???
I am giving away a handmade by me clothespin apron. It has a huge pocket in front that you can fill up with clothespins. (It would also make a wonderful Lego-picking-up-apron or maybe a secret stash of candy carrying apron. Sadly, I don't think the pocket is big enough to hide a jar of Nutella and a spoon)
It is made out of sturdy printed cotton canvas and trimmed in handmade bias tape. It should be strong enough to use for a long time.

If you want to sew an apron yourself, I found a tutorial on this blog. I didn't actually use it because it just seemed easier to me to start cutting without doing the whole measuring thing, but it looks like a good tutorial if you don't want to just start cutting away on your fabric. There is also a similar type of apron in the A is for Apron book.

If you want to buy one, there are super cute ones in this Etsy shop.

  2. I love it! As I was hanging out my sheets this morning I was thinking that I needed to make a clothespin holder for the clothesline. This is so much cuter.

    Happy blogiversary!!!! Isn't it amazing?

  5. That's actually a really good idea. I feel like I have a permanent bruise on my arm from the weight of the clothespin bag.

  8. Oh I love that apron! I think the candy hiding part sounds fantastic. I think you may be able to fit a small jar of nutella and a spoon in there lol.

  13. That is a very nice apron and I can only imagine that array of "stuff" I could put in there! All those random things I come across while vacuuming could be slipped right in there without disturbing my Hoover chi.

  31. When it's so hot outside that I break into a sweat hanging up laundry, I definitely need some inspiration to go out and take care of the clothes. That's a very cute apron, Jody.

  35. Besides learning to bake this year, I decided to enter some of the cooking/preserving contests in the State Fair this year, so there's been a whirlwind of kitchen activity. I'd LOVE an apron with good-sized pockets on it! Especially a non-pink-&-floral-super-foofy one!
