Finished Apron and Giveaway!

Apparently I have been in a non-quilty mood lately!   
This is the second apron I've made in the last few weeks and I feel like I stretched my beginner seamstress skills with this one.  It felt kinda good! You'll have to please excuse the lame picture though.  Although I am excited - you might be able to tell that I feel extremely awkward having my picture taken for all of YOU to see?!?



 I love the girly waistband and the full skirt and these darling pockets.  I also love the scoop neck.  There are lots of fun little details on this one!



This pattern is called Lime Rickey and was designed by my good friend, Eva Garlick from the blog and pattern company called Sew Much Good.  

 
Eva has so generously offered to giveaway 5 - count that FIVE - of her patterns to my blog readers!  All you have to do to enter is stop by her blog, check out her apron and skirt patterns, decide which one is your favorite (that will be the hardest part) and then come back here and leave a comment telling me which one that is! Take a minute to do these 4 little steps and one of these patterns could be yours!  

Be sure to leave an email address if you are a no-reply blogger.

BONUS POINTS:
If you are a follower of my blog, A Little Bit Biased - leave another comment saying "A Little Bit Biased".  If you're a follower of Eva's blog, Sew Much Good, you can leave a third comment saying "Sew Much Good!"

This giveaway will end Thursday night.  The winners will be announced Friday morning.  Good luck!

Hi Amber! I am so envious of Eva's talent with smocking! I love her Lime Rickey pattern, though would probably do it in the colours of Punch & Cookies. :-) Thanks for the opportunity to win a great pattern!

Lime Rickey, first off cuz it's my favorite drink at the Artic Circle in Utah where my in-laws live. Secondly cuz I love the contrast! I'd use orange or blue, though, and make one for my daughter. She loves those colors best. :-)

Hi- the pockets in the Lime Rickey pattern do it for me!

jansmusingagain said...

Hi, what a great fun give away and soooo generous. What a job to decide though, you were so right on that...but I am going for Lime Rickey, I feel I could wear that and feel grand in it, I know the others are really really pretty but maybe they would get 'stolen' by my daughters....hahaha. Good luck everyone. Saving you and your friend Eva's blogs to my favourites. Looking good in that apron. I thought it was a dress.
