Apron Remake Challenge
Apron contest entry

Hurray – for days I have been designing, cutting and stitching my entry for the Sewing Republic Apron Remake Challenge.

For this project, I decided to combine Alabama Chanin design and sewing techinques, upcycling (creating an new garment from old) and the contest guidelines to adapt the Sewing Republic Two Tone Apron pattern.

The contest deadline is today at midnight. My project entry can be found at

First prize is a new Bernina sewing machine and I want it bad.

Please vote for my entry, it is being judged like American Idol- the most viewers vote.

This was fun, I will be keeping my eyes open for more opportunities to test my sewing skills.

Bernina and Burda Style are partnering for a unique sewing contest. Using their two-tone apron pattern, remake it to your own design and submit it for judging!
Contest entries end on March 24, 2010 so you better get busy.
For more information check out their website:
I am working on my entry. I am doing an apron in the Alabama Chanin style using recycled tee shirts from the thrift store. I have been wanting to make an AL Chanin piece and this contest from Bernina and Burda Style is just what I needed for inspiration.
Wish me luck!
