Apron and Napkins GIVEAWAY!

Hello Everyone! I'm finally doing a giveaway! The first item I'm giving away is this adorable half apron. I made this awhile ago but never found the right person to give it to you so now you have a chance to win it!The apron features two pockets. I've never been sure what you are supposed to put into apron pockets. Dirty spoons? Recipe cards? Regardless, there are two deep pockets for you to use as you please.
Don't worry you will probably look much cuter in the apron because you are not in the awkward "Does-she-have-a-gut-or-is-she-pregnant?" phase of life.
I also made a set of eight matching napkins. That is, they match each other and they match the apron in a creamy white color with a black ribbon detail.
To enter the giveaway:

1) Just leave a comment with your email address so I can contact you if you win.  (I promise will not abuse your email address or sell it to anyone or any organization.)
2) Become a follower of this blog.  If you do this, leave a second comment to let me know that you are following!  If you are already a follower, remind me in a comment!
Deadline to enter is December 6th at 11:59 pm EST.  The winner will be chosen at random. Sorry, but at this time I am not able to ship internationally.  Thanks for stopping by and entering this giveaway!  Come back again soon!
UPDATE: GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED AND A WINNER HAS BEEN SELECTED AND CONTACTED!  THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL THE ENTRIES AND ALL OF YOU WHO BECAME NEW FOLLOWERS!  MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

Oh, this is awesome! I love the apron...I put toys in my pockets. Plus flowers or weeds if I have to run outside!

The napkins are perfect! Thanks for the chance at such a cool giveaway!

I love aprons, and I love the black and white fabric you used. I never use the pockets on my aprons, so I guess for me they're just added decoration. :)

Caroline said...

Love those napkins - can never have enough cloth napkins IMO. And math is not my strong suit, so I've never yet tried miter.

P.S. I remember that compulsion to tell everyone that you aren't fat, you're pregnant. :)

I found your blog on SewMamaSew! I think you can see my email through my blogger profile when you click on my name.

I love giveaways, and aprons!

katt said...

I love that apron! And it's totally OK if it makes me look like I have a bit of a belly -- I'm a big girl and curves are good!

Jerri said...

Love those napkins. I would think that I would put a spatula or something in the apron pocket then look everywhere on the counter for it.

Katie said...

These are so cute Rae! You've always been so crafty!

Erika said...

I just love that apron! And I too have a compulsion to inform people I'm pregnant and don't have a beer gut =)

I love it. We use them at school sometimes. The ladies in the cafeteria put extra straws, forks, etc. I tend to keep stickers, prizes, pencils, etc. My e-mail is nikkimq@aol.com. Great idea!

Melissa said...

The apron is darling, and you look great in it. I actually AM in that "is she pregnant or does she have a gut" phase, which stinks because the baby is one now. Time to work harder on losing the baby fat!

Thanks for a fun giveaway!

Catherine said...

oh cute! I love that the napkins and apron match.
And do you know, I had company for dinner the other night, and we realized we do not own any cloth napkins! Sigh. I need to fix that soon.

Catherine said...

and I'm following your blog now- I think it could be useful for me, I just got married and moved into a real house (not a condo with a handyman and restrictions on renovations and painting). :)

FlowerMomma said...

I love it, but I am also in the floppy belly stage of lifE! Thanks to having three girls! Still, I'd love it!

Anonymous said...

If I won I would give the apron to Mike. He sometimes wears them when eating to keep his shirts clean. We tie the apron under his arms so the ties have to be long to fit around. I would use one napkin and give the rest to Mike - because he might need them. I'm sorry if I have given the impression that there is some spilling at the other end of the table - it's really not a problem to me... because he cleans most of it up himself. Thanks, Barbara C.

Susan said...

I gonna follower your blog now can't wait!
