I'm Kebi and this is my first time posting on this blog. This will be my second apron swap, I just finished one with Lucy at the Sassy Apron Blog. It was so much fun and my partner in that swap Dayna W did a fantastic job! I'll post the goodies that I received on my own blog if you'd like to check it out. I'm so so excited for this swap.
I've been looking through the antiques shops in my home town and scored this fabulous large dresser scarf.
I just love the bright colors. It appears to me that this scarf was probably used by the original seamstress for practicing. The patterns include birds, butterflies, flowers, and an adorable tea pot. I was really drawn to the array of bright colors when I saw it.
I'm shopping this weekend for the complimentary fabric.
I don't own a serger, so I'd like to use bias tape to finish the edges of this apron. It looks like some of you ladies are more experienced than I am at sewing. Do you have any instructions or advice for using bias tape? I'd greatly appreciate any help or advice.
To thank you for sharing your words of wisdom, I'd like to host a giveaway for one of Mary Mulari's apron patterns. If you enter Shawnee's Mary Mulari giveaway here and mine you can have double the chance to win! I absolutely love giveaways and love to give back by hosting my own.
To enter, please leave your tips and advice for me. If you, like me, have never worked with bias tape, just leave a comment letting us all know how your apron is going. The winner will have their choice of the Clothespin Apron pattern, the Chatterbox Apron pattern, or the Hot Dish Apron pattern.
Please include your email address if it's not on your blog profile so I can contact you if you win :) Entries will be accepted until Wednesday April 8th at Midnight Central time. I'll announce the winner Thursday morning.
