Apron Giveaway!

Hello everyone and Happy Monday!
I'm finally getting around to my first post on this blog ~ thanks to those of you that are following! I thought the best way to start and to show appreciation was with a giveaway! I really do not know what will become of this blog and/or how much it will get used but for now it gives me a place to talk all things creative and of course update with what is going on at Charlotte English Boutique! I've taken the last few weeks off to enjoy our Spring Break and am now ready to get back into my sewing room.

Now for the
Two aprons I made recently and although I was just experimenting with them, they both turned out really cute!
Oh! and these are ladies-sized aprons, not little girls! They are both made out of medium-weight fabric for durability and are fully lined. The "Blue Island" is a ladies small (sizes 4-8) and the "French Rooster" is a medium (sizes 10-14) but either could be worn by just about any size! 100% cotton, machine wash/dry.

Please pardon the pictures ~ but they are just simple straight apron fronts and straight skirts that tie in back or can be wrapped around the front. These ladies-sized aprons are shown on a toddler sized mannequin. :)

If you're interested in either of these aprons for yourself or as a gift, just leave a comment between now and 12:00 noon (est) Thursday, April 30!
(You may specify which one you're interested in if you'd like.)
I'll draw two names on Thursday afternoon and announce the winners that day!

"Blue Island" has a neck strap (non adjustable) and back ties.
Bib front is about 9-1/2" across and is 27" long.

"French Rooster" has an adjustable neck strap, back ties and is lined with a Laura Ashley English floral print.
Bib front is about 10" across and length is 29" long.

Have a great week!

How beautiful! Do you think if I wore the "Blue Island" one I'd cook better? :-)

Those are both so sweet, I don't think I could decide between the two. I'm so glad that you've made a few "big girl" items. It's so nice to hear from you!

Jill said...

What a fun giveaway and very special b/c the items are made by you. I'd love to enter. The aprons are so, so pretty. I'd love to own either one.

So glad to see your post! Your aprons are beautiful!!! Please consider me entered! Either one would do...my sister is a size small and I am a size medium...oh who am I kidding...LOL, but I'll squeeze into a medium while making delicious treats!!!

Blessings to you from Kansas,
