Craft Apron Giveaway

One lucky winner will receive an Apron from Vicky's My Mom Would Be Proud Etsy Shop.

Maybe you'll choose this cutie!!

Here is a bio that Vicky sent us.

My name is Vicky. Growing up in the fifties, I watched my mom take in sewing and ironing to help feed us 6 kids. She didn't have time to teach us to sew and I had already decided that sewing was something I never wanted to do. She passed away in 1981. In 1985 I had this incredible urge to learn how to quilt and make doll clothes. Quilting and sewing has become my passion. My mom passed away never knowing that I had inherited her talent. My sister has said that mom would be very proud of me, thus that is the name I chose. Please let me share my talent with you. I have collected lots of different fabrics over the years, so most of my aprons will be one of a kind. So get them while you can. On a personal note: I have worked and am still working full time for the same company for the last 38 years. I have also been selling mostly sewing supplies/books on Ebay under the name of quilter70 since 2001. I have sold over 600 items with a 100% positive feedback. My husband is retired and we are Proud Army Parents of one son currently stationed in Alaska.

Vicky didn't mention it, but she is also a Cottage Industry Partner with Sew Liberated and as such is one of the few people who have the right to make Emmeline aprons to sell, along with Lolas and all the other SL patterns. I'd encourage you to try her services!!

  7. Love the site! She had some great choices. I love the retro depictions. My favorite was the Rock Around The Clock apron. So cute! I also posted about this on my blog here http://bellarome.blogspot.com/2009/01/homeward-bound.html. Thanks to Nancy for such lovely aprons!

  8. I have piles of aprons here as high as an elephant's eye, but last week I had to order one of Vicky's aprons. I make 'em too, so I'm pretty discriminating (you too?), and I have to say the work is impeccable. I bought Emma's Practical Pocket apron in a very cool rock 'n' roll print, and as a bonus found a recipe for a bundt cake that I've already made twice (yes, since last week). On another note, Vicky is as nice as her aprons, giving lots of advice and support to a fellow apron maven. Vicky, if you're reading this, our guest last night cooed over your/my apron, saying she'd know my aprons anywhere. My reply: I wish!

  15. So out of all the darling aprons she has up on her etsy store, I am going to have to go with the "Emmeline". It is just so sassy, and the reversible aspect of it is unbeatable. I love the green accent fabric, so fun!
