A free French Cafe Apron pattern for you - and a giveaway!

Do you get caught up in the romance of all things French?
Well, I do, and especially the last few years with so many beautiful French inspired designs out there! 
I have combined my love of Pinks, Roses, and French Cafes (though I have never been to France - but the dream lingers!) in this very sweet French Cafe Apron!
I always thought this tea towel too pretty to dry dishes, but it's perfect as an apron in my sewing room!
As well as the tea towel I have used pink gingham bias, vintage buttons, and cotton twill tape.
You can download my pattern to make this cutey from HERE!
Now, how would you like to win a kit to make a French Cafe Apron of your own using my remaining pretty pink tea towel???!!
 This tea towel has a striped edging and is filled with pretty pink rosebuds. Gorgeous!
 Included in the kit is the pink gingham bias, some of my vintage buttons, and the cotton twill tape. 
Everything you need to make your own apron!!
So how can you win this, you ask?

Very easy.

It's right HERE

Mr E and I are off for a night away. \o/
Son Sam is coming home to spend the weekend with Blossom and help care for Princess Sophie and Bob-the-dog, so all I have to do is stock the fridge for them. It will be lovely for the siblings to spend a couple of days together alone before Bloss moves to the UK. 
But I am not going to dwell on her leaving right now....
Hope you have a wonderful weekend too!


  1. A fabulous idea. Have a lovely trip with Mr E

  2. Lovely Pattern! Thanks for sharing. Judith, Texas

  3. Hi Jenny, Thanks so very much for this adorable free pattern! It is perfect for some quick personal gifts and of course one or two for myself! I can't wait for the Garden issue of your magazine. I'm completely in love with your new Boot design! You know the "Rest" boot was the first block I stitched from your Shabby Roses Quilt patterns. Oooooohhh, I think it would be so fun to have an entire quilt with various boot and Victorian era shoe designs with your Roses...I'm just sayin, *wink*. I'm so glad you are having a night away with Mr. E!!! Time to relax, enjoy and just 'Breath'...
    Keeping you in my heart and prayers, Big Hugs sweet friend...

    **By the way, I like the tea towel idea for working stitcheries on. Especially since I can't buy Hanky Linen here in the US, or at least I haven't found any yet and I've been trying for almost 18 months. But I'm going to my favorite local quilt shop tomorrow, to see if I can pick up a few. They have a huge selection and they are on sale too!

  4. Ooo, such a creative idea and beautiful apron, Jenny! I forgot for a minute that I don't like pink, LOL. But, my granddaughter does and she'd love to have a pretty apron made from this kit. Thanks! I 'liked' you on Facebook.

  5. I love it, but I don't want to go on Face book, I already use to much time with blogging! But it is a great idea and I have one tea towel I bought in Belgium with roses, so I will use the idea! Thanks and have a nice day,

  6. Enjoy your weekend away with Mr E...
    I am sure the siblings will have fun..

  7. I love your apron Jenny. You were right. The tea towel was too pretty for the dishes. Boo hoo! I can't enter your lovely giveaway as I don't do Facebook! Oh well! Have a lovely weekend.

  8. what a sweet pretty apron... have a lovely weekend...

  9. Darling apron. I love stripes! I've been following you here and on your FB page (and LIKED) a long time ago! Thanks for sharing this delightful apron pattern. I'd love to win your cute kit.

  10. This is just too sweet, my dear, I love it!

  11. It's really adorable, but where does one get the tea towels?

  12. Jenny, how adorable! I can only hope I win the kit. If not, I definitely plan on making this! Thanks for the giveaway. Sharon at slozano5 at earthlink dot net

  14. I don't facebook, but I'd surely like to know why we don't have pretty tea towels like that up over!

  15. So cute, follow you on facebook now.
