Hexie Apron & Giveaway Winnings

March has been good to me. I've won two blog giveaways!! The first was from Kelly at kelbysews she had a giveaway to celebrate her birthday and I was seriously eyeing this bag and what luck I WON!! She also included some Good Folks fabric squares as part of the prize. I stole this picture from her because the Florida sun makes for better pictures then the Chicago grey I'm dealing with.

                            Party Polly!

She also sent me this pretty pouch which we exchanged for a side swap (yes I stole this picture from her too!) I have yet to fulfill my end of the swap - I promise I will have it out next week almost finished!!!

              Zippered Pouch Tutorial on my blog!

You can find an awesome zippy pouch tutorial on her blog too!

The second was a huge box 'o scraps from Kaelin at The Plaid Scottie. I had so much fun going through them.

Which almost immediately became this apron. I used my Accuquilt Go! to cut the 5" hexagons. I only added a couple of my own scraps. I probably have enough scraps left to make 10 aprons! Apron anyone?? I machine sewed them with the aid of this video from ladyharvatine. This went together so fast I am thinking I would love to make a 5" hexagon quilt as I don't have the patience (or quite frankly the skill) to hand sew smaller ones - I've tried!

Thanks for the giveaways ladies! I'll have to return the favor to blog land with a giveaway of my own one of these days.
