Storms are raging on the left coast in California where I live, and I hope you all want to rage likewise over the giveaway that I can announce today, sponsored by Gingham Life.
Owner Sally, has crafted an apron that has been constructed with extreme care and detail. I love the bias trim she has made for this fabric combination! And the heart pocket accent is adorable.
Sally says, "It's a one-of-a-kind apron made in a classic 1940s "one-yard apron" style. I call it a "bungalow heart apron," in honor of the little houses in my garage-sale-crazy neighborhood where I find many of the vintage aprons that inspire my creations.
This apron is made from prewashed new 100% cotton and accented with fabric from a gorgeous vintage feedsack remnant. The bias binding is homemade. It's machine washable; I recommend a delicate cycle and line drying out of the sun to protect the vibrant colors of the feedsack fabric."
This apron is flattering in shape and the pink color will brighten your cheeks with a rose colored hue.
At Gingham Life you can find aprons made from beautiful vintage and new fabrics with wonderful florals, prints, and of course gingham! Additionally, Sally offers other useful household goods like tea cozies and tablecloths. Her garments are durable and meant to be used! By combing garage sales and local thrift shops for inexpensive "finds" Sally makes things that are affordable as well as beautiful and useful.
