Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

The time has finally arrived for the worldwide Sew Mama Sew May Giveaway Day (in Australia anyway, I'm probably a bit early for the US).

I'm giving away one of my Vintage Tea Towel aprons, and I will post to anywhere in the world.

This vintage teatowel is from Magnetic Island and has Australian Seashells. The neck is fully adjustable with snaps to suit different heights.

The rules are that you must leave me a comment on this post by 8.00 PM May 31st (Melbourne time) and I will draw a winner using the random number generator.

The good news is that even if you don't win my giveaway, you can pop on over to The CurlyPops Shop and buy one for yourself.

*~*a.l.s*~* said...

that is such a beautiful Apron! I'd hate to dirty it by cooking but just might wear it around the house for fun! Gorgeous work and store!

angelique said...

I think apron would suit my place here just perfectly. Put me in for a chance at this giveaway.

Amy (badskirt) said...

I'm good for aprons at the moment, so don't count this as an entry. I want it to go to someone who really needs one!

I do want to say that I absolutely love the fabric on the side panels. I'm normally a little hesitant with retro-groovy prints, but that one is mad terrific!

Katy said...

wow - i would love to win this!! Count me in!!

PaisleyJade said...

Love it - count me in!

mandapanda said...

Oh Cam, this has to be my favourite apron yet!! I simply LOVE shells! You should see my collection, it takes up 2 cupboards! I've even been to Townsville and seen Magnetic Island up close and personal! I found a hammerhead clam half on the beach and it proudly sits in one of those cupboards! lol
Count me in!! (and I hope you get your package soon, let me know when you do!)
