It's Blog Give-Away Day

It's the Fruit Cocktail Apron!

This is a half apron, made of medium weight purple denim and trimmed in a coordinating fruit and flowers print. Everything was pre-washed before construction, so you won't have any shrinkage problems. All of the bias tape trim is double stitched to keep it from fraying in the wash. ( I learned that one from personal experience!) The overlay makes 3 pockets so you have lots of room to put your potholder or oven mitt.

This is a nice slim fit and won't make you look like you ate all the holiday cookies.


A couple of closeups for detail:

The print pattern.

This is an easy one-size-fits-most and should easily fit up to a women's 2x size.

Leave a comment and I will randomly select one person to receive this apron.

Due to shipping cost, I need to restrict this to the US and Canada only.
Comments added until midnight today, EST will be eligible.

Holy-moly, have you folks seen that list at sewmamasew! I'll leave the comments open until Friday.

Thanks for stopping by Dovie's Aprons. Come back soon.
