Here’s a fun and super-simple gift you can put together in under an hour, plus a little more for drying time. Wouldn’t it be cute for a child and Daddy to make this gift together?
My little girl has reached the age where she always wants to help me in the kitchen. With this “sweet” apron, she’ll be super-proud to help mommy out, and keep neat, too.
- One adult apron
- One child apron
- Felt Cupcake Iron-On
- Sequin Cupcake Iron-On
- “Sweet” Sequin Iron-On
- Decorative trim (about 1 yard per apron)
- Iron (a crafter’s mini-iron is great)
To make the child’s apron, remove the felt cupcake iron-on and place it in the center of the chest portion of the apron. Follow the directions on the package. Then apply the word “sweet” right under the cupcake, again following the directions on the package.
Use Fabri-Tac to apply the trim to the top of the apron, and around the lower edge. Finish it off with a few buttons- I like adding one to the “cherry” on top of the cupcake and a few at the top corners of the apron where the ties attach around the neck.
For the adult apron, apply the sequin cupcake ir0n-on as directed. Use the Fabri-Tac to attach the trim to the top portion of the apron and across the top edge of the pockets. Finish with some buttons on the cherry, at the top of the apron, and a row on the trim. (Use as many or as few as you like.)
Let the glue dry overnight, and wait at least 2 days before washing. Now let the baking begin!
