Romantic Flowers and Ruffles Apron Giveaway-Aprons by Annie G

This week Annie at Aprons by Annie G has custom made an apron for this week's giveaway. This apron exhibits soft pastel tea themes on a powder pink background. Anne said, "I loved using this fabric because a portion of the sales of this particular line go towards cancer research."

Annie started her website two years ago with the idea in mind to sell handbags and laundry bags and NOTHING ELSE. But after making her first apron a year and a half ago, the rest was history! Now, Annies apron sales far exceed sales for her bags.

With each stitch Annie says, "I feel like I am transported back in time to the late 40’s and early 50’s. I'm back in my grandmother’s kitchen and she was at the sink in her old worn apron. My great grandmother was at the counter shaping rolls, also wearing a full apron.
I love my kitchen memories!"

Annie mostly sticks to vintage style aprons, particularly those from the mid 40’s to the mid 50’s. She uses a lot of reproduction fabrics or original feed sacks, and the majority of buttons are early plastic or vintage bakelite, which would have been used during that time frame.

About 75% of the aprons Annie makes are her own creations. She has drawn ideas, patterns and shapes from recollections of the women who surrounded her as she grew up and the aprons they wore. While Annie loves to make aprons as beautiful and feminine as possible, she does not typically use much lace or vintage trims because she wants the aprons to be as easy to care for as possible.

You can say that Annie's aprons are "practically beautiful" because you can throw them in the washer and dryer, touch up with an iron only if you feel like it!! They are intentionally constructed to be low maintenance for today's busy Mom.

Annie wishes all of the Apron Goddesses, "Happy Memories."

To enter the giveaway for Annie's lovely apron pictured above visit Aprons by Annie G and browse the selection. Come back and comment upon your favorite one. That is easy! The winner is selected by random number generator.

For an additional five entries post about this giveaway leaving the permalink address (URL) in the comments too.

We need to see real women wearing aprons that they love! Email address is located under contacts in the header above. And please, please include your blog address in your email for me!

Good luck on this! I think it's going to be a hot one...
