Scrap Buster and a Giveaway!!!!!





Another Saturday, another scrap project.
And at the end of this post the GIVEAWAY!!!!

I had some left over pillowcase from this project.  I knew right away what I was gonna do with it.


Doesn't it make a pretty apron?

Here's how I made it.


Supplies Needed:

  • Scrap of fabric

  • 80" ribbon at least 2"

  • Thread

  • Sewing machine

Cut your scrap of fabric into a rectangle.
Mine is 20" x 13"


For the hem fold over 1/4" and then another 1/4" and iron.


        Sew the hem.

For the tie fold your ribbon in half and iron.


 
Cut the ends of the ribbon at an angle and apply fray block.


Pin the ribbon to the fabric (make sure to match the centers)  and sew.

Now you're done!!!!

If you would like to have it now is your chance to win it!!!!

All you have to do is leave me a comment. It's that simple!  You have until Friday March 26 to enter.  I will announce the winner next Saturday.
