Perfectly Thrifty Apron Giveaway

These are some of the presents I made for my favorite girls on my Christmas list this year.

I have an entire cupboard of fabric. Most of it is from yard sales or thrift shops. Sometimes, I find charming vintage yardage, uncut and forgotten. Embroidered or printed vintage tablecloths are also folded in stacks, next to charming vintage sheets and pillowcases. You can't buy prints like those anymore and you can't beat the garage sale prices for someone's forgotten project.

This apron is my favorite.
The bodice is a blue and white polka-dot vintage sheet.
The bottom ruffle is the edge of an old pink tablecloth.
The two prints are adorable vintage prints that I picked up at yard sales this summer for a song.

This apron is made of scraps and thrifted fabrics. It matches my mom's kitchen colors : )
The turquoise is from a dress I made for my little Ella (it came out so wrong, so I re-used that fabric). 
The blue polka-dot fabric is a vintage sheet, the ruffles are all thrifted modern fabric.

So, here's the giveaway part:
One lucky reader will win one perfectly thrifty apron made by me and my handy little sewing machine.
I have more of the fabric pictured in the first two pics (used all of the last one up).

Good luck!
(Oh, I will pick a winner on January 15th!)
