It's time for another giveaway
This is what happens when you store all your delicious patterns in an Ikea box that isn't secure at the bottom. I was attempting to find some patterns for this giveaway and when I picked up the box......... the box base gives way and they all decided to launch themselves to the floor, even into the bin! So I take this as the universe telling me I have waaaay too many patterns and it's a good thing I am willing to part with some.
Of course, I have an ulterior motive for this giveaway. I have a dilemma. I can't quite decide how to photograph my children's aprons for my Silly Gilly website. Here is what I currently do:
Not a very exciting photo, but practical nonetheless. I would love to have the apron displayed with a little more pizazz when I photograph it for the website.
Sooo, if you can leave a comment by 9pm Monday 8th September with your idea for a creative and visually appealing way of capturing my aprons, you'll be in the running for this:
From left to right:
Style pattern size 5 - Child's Dress - gently flared bias cut dress. Circa 1976.
Style pattern size 2 - Child's Shirt, Skirt, Trousers or Shorts. Circa 1979.
Butterick pattern size 1 - Easy Toddlers' Pantdress or Pantjumper. Circa late 60's.
Sytle pattern size 2 - Child's Dress or Tunic, Trousers or Shorts. Circa 1972.
All patterns to my knowledge have all the pieces required and all have full instructions included.
