Samantha Walker Apron


Okay, so here's the deal...I'm going to tell you a little *secret* BUT you MUST promise not to tell ANYONE!

Are you ready for this???

Are you SURE????

K.

Here Goes!

I didn't touch a sewing machine.

No. Really.

And I didn't touch a needle and thread, either.

Nope. The entire thing is no-sew! I am officially a SERIOUSLY big fan of Heat & Bond. For reals. Just say'n.

AND....I have some GREAT NEWS!!! I am giving this adorable little apron to one lucky Just Jingle reader today! Just leave a comment on this post with a way to contact you and you are entered to win! Just be sure to leave a 'real' comment as opposed to a 'pick me' comment, because, well, quite frankly those bug the heck out of me and somehow the random number generator always agrees with me on that one. Hm. Odd, that. SO, Yeah, totally leave a comment if you would like to win this super cute Samantha Walker fabrics Apron!!!

And...don't forget to leave comments all along the way because Samantha is giving away some super cute fabric and every blog you leave a comment on gives you an entry! So...next up is Nancy! LOVE HER! So hop along and be inspired!!!

And...for those who are here to peek at my workspace, ahhh, yes....that photo...yet again...

I don't have any projects in progress, as I wrapped up the stuff I was working on! *sigh* I guess I'll just have to make sure I'm doing something extra cool next week! HA! Don't forget to stop over at Julia's blog if you would like to join in for What's On Your Workspace Wednesday!

  1. I love the apron! I'm so glad you shared a non-sew way to make an apron for those who don't have a sewing machine or are afraid to use one. You did fabulous! The pink plaid with the paisleys is one of my favorite combos.

  2. Heat and Bond sounds good. Do you need an iron to heat it up? No sew sounds like a great alternative foe people like me who can't see to get the needle threaded! Enjoy your blog hop, and have a great day, Valerie

  33. How can your mess be boring when it has taken so much creativity to get it that way and there is so much desirable stash on it. Other people's always seem enticing.

  46. I'm freaking out that you didn't sew at all, thanks so much for sharing this project...is the heat and bond you used on a roll or does it come by the yard?

    ReplyDelete

  52. I spent years and years fighting with a sewing machine that kept breaking the thread or altering the tension without warning before I found one that actually works. Cost me UK£700!!!!! Now I see that all I needed was some iron on bonding. Ay eck!!
