Supplier Spotlight – Venezie Designs {Giveaway}


Look what I made! Yes, I’ve been on a bit of a sewing kick around here. When Venezie Designs announced a new apron pattern I was excited to be a tester.

Here’s the new pattern…

Carmella Cover Pic only

The Carmella Hostess Apron!

Isn’t it beautiful? Karen has worked so hard getting this pattern just right, and she always comes up with the prettiest fabric combinations for her projects. Venezie Designs has fabulous patterns that are easy to follow and they turn out looking like a million bucks. Isn’t that really what you want in a pattern?


I love the straps on the Melrose Tote. It’s a great project to use some of those fantastic new designer fabrics to create a one-of-a-kind beauty.


My family always lovingly picks on me when I bring out my sewing machine. Maybe it’s because I only sew every few years or so. Well, I’m trying to change that, and I actually remembered how to work everything on it this time around…that’s progress!

If you are new to sewing you can make this beautiful apron without any trouble. I did it in one evening. I meant to have the larger print on top, but I got confused when I was at the fabric store. One of the sheets to the test pattern got left on my printer somehow and I didn’t know how long to make the sash. I found it the next day. I guess it is a little funny around here when I start sewing! :)

Venezie Designs has been kind enough to offer one Everything Etsy reader a chance to make one of these beautiful Carmella Hostess Aprons using this wonderful pattern. They would make a great gift, don’t you think?

    I’d have to choose the apron because I love to matching aprons for each season for my daughter and two granddaughters ages 2-1/2 and 7 months. You know how tiny the littlest apron is!???!
