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...

Yup. A mess. And a boring mess at that! 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!

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.

craftattack said...

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

Clare G said...

Another Fab project. Love that fabric combination and the fact that it's no-sew. I can sew, I just like that I don't have to.

Wipso said...

My life just wouldn't be the same with no sewing. :-)

LOVE your apron and what a nice giveaway! You'd never know that the apron hadn't met the sewing machine!

Kathy said...

Hahaha, a "boring mess"?! Funny, I know what you mean by that, although I am not the creator/inventor you are. Your apron is darling and I love that you love Heat and Bond...truly miraculous stuff, eh?!

Leah the Orange said...

oooh! a girl after my own heart! heat and bond, you say? i'm all OVER that stuff! i can envision, i can cut, i can assemble, but my sewing machine HATES me. no-sew?! yes, please! the apron is super duper cute, and you ROCK!

Neil said...

Thanks for sharing your space this week and I hope the rest of your week goes well! No sew sounds great! Is there a no cook that makes dinners that look as cool as the apron?!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Lovely, lovely combo of fabrics, ribbons etc. You've done it so neatly, I know I'd get heat and bond stuck everywhere except where it was meant to be!! Fabric fans rule :D xxxx

Colleen said...

I love your way of thinking, no sewing machine. Great apron and you did such an awesome job of modeling it.

famfa said...

No-sew. Brilliant. Would like to try that. Great apron. Will now hop over to all the others.

Guiseppa said...

This is so cute and I love that you didn't even use a sewing machine! I love using heat and bond too!

Jimmi said...

This is SO fabulous!!
Makes me think I could make one, too ;)

jayne said...

Cute apron - love the fabric!

Kathy at Bliss Habits said...

I KNEW where you were going the moment you said you had a little secret but I have to tell you that does not look like it wasn't sewn! Awesome. I think that apron would be perfect for me since we are back to Mad Men watching in my house and a cute apron TOTALLY compliments a martini or manhatten in just the very perfect way!

1CardCreator said...

Love the apron and the fact that it was no sew makes it that much more fabulous!

michib said...

Super cute apron there missy!!! I love fabrics...matter of fact I think I would be considered a (gulp) fabric hoarder. hehe That's ok...a gal can NEVER have to much facric on hand.

StampinCathy said...

What a fun apron. Love how you used the different fabrics. Now I want to make one.

Diana Fisher said...

Super cute apron and I love that you didn't sew. I am a big fan of fabric. Have way too much of it for the small amount of projects I do each year.

ClassyDify said...

OMG!!! I love aprons! I try to figure out ways to make aprons from just plain white ones that I can alter or win from crops at my LSS. Must do a tutorial on YouTube to show me how you made this apron!!!! What is heat and bond? Would love to know more about that. Thank you very much for sharing! Ideas are now jumping in my head!!!!

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.

Thanks for the chance :D

Scrapfaire said...

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?

sharon g said...

NO WAY! You didn't sew it? I love this apron. I could use it when I garden, do crafts, etc. Thanks for the chance. I love the colors and design.

Carolina said...

Love the apron! So happy to see mine is not the only messy room! Makes me feel more normal!

Tracy said...

Your apron is so adorable. I love the no sew. that is how hubby repairs his work pants, teehee.

Looks like you have some fun creative projects in the works.

okienurse said...

great looking apron! Love the fabrics. Your craft room looks very busy and creative this week. I can so relate to the horizontal surfaces being cover with all sorts of goodies. thanks for sharing. Vickie

Yogi said...

thanks for the glimpse. looks like you're busy... Have a great day.

Joanne said...

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!!
Hugs Joanne xx

Monique said...

Love your apron!! and thanks for explaining how to create one!!

Carisa said...

omg, i LOVE LOVE LOVE the apron you made and that it's NO SEW is even better as i have a terrible phobia of the sewing machine!! *giggle* I've got my fingers crossed as this would be super fun to have as i'm getting messing with the girls. these SW hops always make me want to pull out the fabric box!!!

jennifer mitten said...

How clever to use that heat and bond. How does it hold up in the laundry! I have always wondered that:-)
