My one year blog-o-versary actually fell during Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day at the end of May, so this is a post celebration giveaway, but a giveaway none the less!
There are still days when I cannot believe that there are people that actually read my blog and are interested in what I am up to. I just love the "bloggy friends" I have made over the past year, and enjoy reading everyone's comments and opinions that help to improve everything I work on!
So this giveaway is to say thank you! Who wants some free fabric?? I am giving away a fat quarter bundle of 6 prints from Aneela Hoey's Sherbert Pips line (and a few little pin toppers)
And a Charm Pack of Sugar Pop! by Liz Scott for Moda (and a few little pin toppers)

As for part two of this post, I figured I'd share the finished apron that I showed a sneaky-peek of yesterday.
I used an Alexander Henry print I had tucked away in my stash and a pretty pink for the apron strings. When I cut the pattern pieces out, the body of the apron is much shorter than the sample picture on the front of the book. According to the instructions, there are supposed to be 2 more rows of ruffles on the bottom about 2.5 inches apart, and another row of ruffles along the top.
After walking away from this project on Monday, and taking another look at it on Tuesday, I decided to just go with the one row of ruffles along the bottom, embroider the recipients monogram, and call it a day.
I will say, I do like the apron patterns in this book because there are different sizes! This is the medium apron, and there are optional darts to give a little shape as well. If I had this to do again, I would probably add a little more length to the apron body, and add the extra ruffles, but I think its cute as is.
One more thing off the check list, happy sewing!
