Threading Your Way ~ Aprons and Art Smocks ~ Link Party

Welcome to the eighth edition of Threading YOUR Way with Threading My Way ...

... a new link list each week that will build into a resource of sewing ideas, tutorials, pattern reviews and pictures. Each list is an ongoing linky where you can link up as many projects as you like throughout the year.

Our first seven linkys have been a great success, with such a wide variety of projects shared;: tutorials, pattern reviews, tips, hints and lots of photos full of ideas and inspiration. Our Bags and Totes linky has been the most popular so far, with 122 entries at last count, followed by 75 entries in the Girls' Dresses linky.

Remember, these linkys are ongoing, so you can continue to add projects throughout the year. Add as many projects as you would like.

Our eighth linky for 2012 is everything Aprons and Art Smocks, made by YOU. Link up anything that is a cover all of some sort, like an apron or an art smock. You can also link up aprons to hold things, such as peg aprons or tool belts.

Aprons and Art Smocks
Link up any posts that you have written on Aprons or Art Smocks. Your posts might (but don't have to) include any of the following:
  • how you made it
  • tutorials
  • photos
  • pattern reviews
  • tips for making
  • what you learnt
As long as YOU have made it, link it up and show it off. Link up as many posts on Aprons and Art Smocks, as you would like. Come back through the year and add more.

Guidelines for linking up:
  • Each post needs to be about an apron or art smock that you have made.
  • Link to a specific post (not the home page of your blog).
  • No direct links to shops or giveaways.
The fine print:
  • By linking up, you are giving me permission to use one of your photos in a feature. I will, of course, link back to your post, giving you full credit.
  • By linking up, you are giving me permission to pin your post to Pinterest. I pin all features to Pinterest, unless you specifically request me not to.
  • By linking up, you are giving me permission to share your post on social media - FacebookTwitterGoogle+
If you'd like:
  • Subscribe to Threading My Way (GFC, RSS, Linky Followers), to keep up to date, to see if you've been featured and to know when the next themed party starts.
  • Grab a button to spread the word about Threading YOUR Way with Threading My Way and put it somewhere on your blog.

I look forward to seeing your aprons and smocks...

  1. Ooh, I haven't made an apron or a smock, but I will be back to check out all the links, as I LOVE aprons! Would like to make one soon, but am currently buried in Swoon-land. lol Happy Weekend!

  2. I can't wait to see this build! Art smocks are something I'd love to do, and who ever has enough aprons?

  3. Since I love all the inspiration I get from these ongoing link parties, I decided to make a post about them on my blog. If all of your followers with blogs do that, think of all the new ideas we will have at one click!

  4. I love this theme..I have been wanting to make an apron..I might just have to do that so I can link it up here. :) Thank you for hosting this, Pam! :D

  5. Another great idea for a link up Pam! Looking forward to browsing through apron goodness!

  6. Ooooo! I'm feeling inspired! The girls and I all need new aprons!!!

  7. Sooo many great links.. I LOVE the aprons.. I need a new one and I'm inspired.. ;)))

  8. I must have been under a rock lately. I totally missed this one! I adore aprons. I linked one up. Thanks for sharing with us.

  9. I found my way to this Linky party from a blog I follow and I knew I had to link up! Thanks for hosting!

  10. Thank you so much for inviting me over - it's such an honor to be on the 'apron parade'...your new follower - pc malaysia!

  11. What a wonderful collection of aprons. What a pity many modern people do not use them, it is so good in keeping our clothes in better shape. They also reminded me a phrase from a book. Years ago when my late MIL, retired she mentioned wanting to embroider, thus i bought her a book. Creative Embroidery by Joan Nicholson, Gramercy publishing company, MCMLX. After her death, the book came to me, and i read it and was amazed to read on page 65...."An embroidered apron for a little girl would be welcome, and would make her feel quite grown up as she helps set the dinner table." i must say i do not like the idea that only the girl is supposed to lay the table, i believe both girls and boys should do it. But Having all those nice aprons might make every one happy to use them. P.s. Over the years i made several Male aprons for friends` husbands,,,, and thet all use them when helping in the kitchen!!!

  12. What a great idea to put so many apron tutorials in one place! Thanks for inviting me to add mine : )

  13. I love all the aprons on this page! I was browsing to get some ideas for my next apron and thought I'd link up mine! Thanks for hosting, Pam!


  14. When my boyfriend broke up with me 4 weeks ago..

    I did everything to get my boyfriend back but nothing worked.

    I contacted a relationship doctor i saw online.

    I told the relationship doctor everything,

    He promised to fix my relationship problem.

    I am the happiest lady on earth right now,

    Never too late to fix your broken heart.

    You can still get your lover back...

    Fix broken relationship/marriage...

    My relationship was restored as promised,

    My Ex-boyfriend came back,

    He promised never to leave me again

    Everything happened just in 3 days..

    I RECOMMEND YOU TO __________________
