My First Giveaway!

I have been so inspired by my blog friends' scrap, blanket, quilt, etc.'s giveaways that I decided to do one of my own.  In order to support my sewing habit I have decided to make some aprons and sell them for Valentine's gifts.  They will be $15 for a premade one or $20 for a custom one (you choose fabric and color scheme and I go get it.  You could also send me the fabric and I will make one for $10).  I think these make great Valentine's presents for you or your spouse because of their "sassy" and "naughty" nature.  They are great for the kitchen or for other purposes...
Anyway, to get the word out I have decided to do a giveaway.  Let me know which of these is your favorite and then post a link back to this post on your blog.  I will randomly choose a winner on January 28th.  And if you are interested in buying one, just let me know in the comment section or email me.
Thanks all! 
Oh and thanks to my lovely sister Chelsea for modeling for me!




I have one of these pink ones available. The other is already set aside for gift.



Here is the "Pink Butterfly" Apron.



And Here is a lovely "Red, White and Black"

And an all "black and white" with stripes for the bottom ruffle and belt and dots for the pocket and neck straps.

And this one could be my favorite! I love the orange and brown together. There will be dots for the pocket and neck straps and stripes for the ruffle and the belt. These two are obviously in the "to sew" pile.

And while I am at it, would anyone out there be interested in doing a fabric scrap swap every other month or so?  Just wondering about getting one started.

Those are darling! I would love to have you make me one! How much of each fabric do you need? any other "items" needed? My sewing machine and I have not spoken in years (like since jr high) and I am not sure I remember how it all works - so a list of supplies would be great! :) I would gladly pay to have ya make one of those darling aprons! VERY cool idea! (though I think your time is worth more than $10! *wink*) LMK!
