Toile Apron and Tea Towel-Very First Give Away

 Blue toile and blue transferware are some of my favorite combinations.....
I enjoy mixing them on our sideboard.





I have been wanting to do a give away,
 but was really afraid....
What do I offer as a give away?
What if I do a give away
 and no one responds?
Well....here goes!
For my very first give away....
 I made a toile apron and tea towel!

I hope you like them!






The pattern for the apron is based on a
 vintage apron that I found at a flea market.
It is lined.....
the waistband and hem are scalloped 
and curvy....




Found the sweetest buttons
 to embellish the curvy little pockets....



The tea towel is lined....
and has a sweet 5 inch ruffle.....










Thank you....in advance to any one that enters....
you are so kind! 


If you would care to enter my absolutely,
 very first give away....

  1. Become a follower of Elegant Economies
  2. Follow me on Face Book
  3. Follow me on Pinterest 
  4. Follow me by Email
  5. Tell about my give away on face book, or your blog
  6. Leaving a comment for each time will become separate entries for your name. 
  7. October 2 will be the cut off date...again thank you!




Hope you have an awesome week!
Blessings, Audrey
