Apron Giveaway

I mentioned on my last post that I was doing a basic sewing class. Well I'm finished it was a lot of fun. I learnt some new techniques and made a couple of things I'm quite proud of.
Here are some cushions

a bit of appliqué and covered buttons

it even has a zip on the back :)
I hadn't ever done a zip before so very impressed with myself

We also made an apron and this is where the giveaway comes in.

I worked hard to get the seams nice and flat and even.
It is made of drill with some quite nice quilting fabric for the appliqué 
I may have mentioned before that I'm not good at following instructions and this apron was no different
I changed the pattern to make it better in my opinion :)

What did I do.
Firstly I made the ties twice as long and while my daughter is very skinny they even can tie at the front on me.
Secondly I changed the pocket to make it more like a hoody pocket.
Lastly the appliqué was supposed to be at the top in the middle only, but this is prettier :)

So what do you think? Would you like to win it?
To win leave a comment telling me the best thing you ever made.
For a second entry become a follower, or mention that you already are.

I will draw the winner on Tuesday the 28th of June 2011
at 5pm - Australian Eastern Standard Time.
(That's my birthday)

Good Luck
