Just over 8 months ago when I started this l blog I never thought I people would actually read it. Little did I know! I started it as a central place to post my creations to share with friends & family… in the last 8 months it has just taken off. This summer the traffic went from about 3,000 hits a month to 12,000!!! I am just in awe.
To celebrate this awesome mile stone I wanted to reward my blog readers with give away! What am I giving away you ask? The VERY FIRST copy of my new Ebook/Pattern for my Twirly Half Apron that I posted a sew and show of here.
After the winner has been announced I will be posting the Ebook in my Etsy store & it should be available with-in a few weeks at You Can Make This.

Congratulations!! I am one of those that discovered your site this summer. Love to see so much interest in sewing. I’m a young grandmother, so one of the first I discovered were the pettiskirts on your darling girls. Since I have 3 granddaughters under 6, 2 nieces under 6, and 2 greatgranddaughters under 3, I absolutely LOVED this and will be making lots. Got some great tullle net at a garage sale for $1 for a whole bolt!!!
Will be making the twirly apron for all my Christmas Cookie Bakers. 3-4 adults and 2-3 kids.
Also, love the idea of the sewing stash challenge. I have a LOT of fabric and can do this!
Would love to see something on how to sew for kids who you can’t measure. The last thing I made for my granddaughter was a dress which was a little short, and I haven’t been able to get her measurements yet. Maybe some kind of guide as to RTW sizes and pattern sizes?
Great work…and THANKS!
I love the projects and patterns but only adult patterns, I don’t have kids so kid stuff is wasted on me. 🙂
came from cafemom to enter your contest. very cute apron by the way. i LOVE aprons.
HI! I am in the sewing mama group on cafemom. I absolutely love the newest apron you made. Very good work. I hope I win one of your pieces of art!
Love seeing all your stuff on sewingmamas! Congrats on your first e-book – I’d love a copy! 🙂
I am always astounded by what you are able to accomplish being a single mom with three young ones! I think it’s high time to see those girls of yours in a feliz!
I’ve been watching them come up at SM’s SNS and like them more and more!
I just want to say congrats and that the apron is so pretty (looks like a skirt almost!) and I’m jealous since I can’t sew (so you don’t need to enter me into the contest) 🙂
I loved the apron and would love to win your first ebook. I always enjoy reading your blog 🙂
How pretty! I’ve been looking for a half-apron (so much less MATRONLY than full aprons) and this one is adorable. Hope I win!!
Wow!!! I am totally impressed with your talent! I cant even sew a button on a pair of pants and you are a single mommy.. you are very impressive! Love the apron its too cute for words.. Go check out my blog I do cakes on the side and always wear aprons when I drop them off people love it so I would love to tell people where I got this wonderful apron from. Thanks for the chance to win it! 🙂 I do a cookie decorating party for my two sons and 1 nephew and 1 neice I would like to see your take on christmas aprons for kids.. I am sure you would do amazing things with them 🙂
Hello, Your “Twirly Half Apron” is wonderful. I would love to win it. I would like to see you have more ready to wear items on your site. Congratulations on your 50,000th post. Quite a milestone!
I wish you many more happy and healthy posts. Please enter me in your delightful drawings. Many thanks, Cindi
I love the gymboree reduced price clothes story. I don’t like to pay ful price, and always have coupons. I am just like you. I- just posted there as well by mistake. Congratulations on you 50,000 hits.
I love the free patterns and tutorials. My friend emailed me about you. I’ve just taken up sewing and quilting as hobbies.
I really like looking at your sewing projects! I am not all that great at sewing, but I would love to have one of these aprons.
I love it here! I think you do a great job!
I really like your apron patterns because of the length and the flowiness (is that a word?) of them. I love that they are so feminine. Also, I love the tie at the top. I am a big fan of long wrap around ties. Thanks for the chance. This is lovely. I am in the market for a new apron so this would be perfect. 🙂
Congratulations on your achievements! I love the swing of the apron and the fabric is terrific.
This is such a cute apron- I love your blog especially as a new sewer!
congratulations! The apron is really beautiful. Your site is nice and I was having fun checking out the eggs you made using Bento egg molds. I’ll have to check that out. Thank you!
I love the apron! I would lvoe to see you make a stroller sack…like a JJ Cole bundle me for toddlers!
I’m a pretty regular lurker – and a relatively new seamstress, so like when you do tutes or give advice. I also like apron patterns & adult clothing patterns. Either way, keep up the great work – all those hits are not by accident!
I linked you on my blog!
Love the apron!
I think you are doing great on your blog and sewing.
I’d love to see more dresses for the girls!
love the patterns..you are so talented- I am learning and some look really good and some well some get added to the quilt pile
Hi Kymy, love the site, what you do with your time is absoutly amazing! I love the fabric on this apron. I have it on my list to make aprons as presents this year for CHristmas. I’ve never tried a half apron but it looks so stylish, I just might have to! I would love to see stuff to make for boys! Keep up the amazing work!!
I just found your blog tonight on a google search! I am looking for a tute on baby doll slings… so I would love to see that!
But, I couldn’t resist the giveaway and bookmarked you…. this is assuredly going to be a new favorite place of mine!!
I am a brand new sewer and I am in love with it! I’m sure I can find a lot of inspiration here!
The apron is so cute! It makes me want to do all sorts of domestic thingies.
I would love to see more aprons in different patterns and designs!
I loved the apron and would love to win your first ebook. Thank you.
I like that the patterns are not too hard for us novices.

This is an amazing apron. I Love that you are willing to step outside the box and use more hip and trendy colors for your aprons. This helps with those of us mother that aren’t.. traditional.!
I love this apron and would love to wear it when I’m grilling, who said women can’t grill and look sexy?
the free patterns are so awesome! great site!
I love the girls pettiskirts! They are so cute and so are your daughter! Thanks for the chance to win!
Nice! Love the material! Would love to have a chance to win the pattern! I like the fact that ya don’t have to be a professional to do your patterns! love your tutorials – given in a clear manner so that even my ignorant sewing ability can comprehend it 😀
