Now that October’s coming to an end, we’ll be working on that Thanksgiving turkey before you know it! I love the idea of having a fun apron to wear for all that time spent in the kitchen, or having one that I can give to my host as a gift. So today I’m sharing a DIY Thanksgiving apron that is pie-centric (my favorite kind of “centric”) and perfect for protecting your clothes as you baste, mix and bake on the big day. Here’s how I made it!
- Adult Canvas Apron with Pockets
- Siser Vinyl – I used
- Small Piece of Fabric
- Iron-On Fabric Adhesive
- Craft Cutter (I use a Silhouette Cameo)
- Make Pie Printable
Step 1. Arrange your text or design to be cut out with a shadow on your craft cutter software. I used a Silhouette Cameo which meant I used the offset feature on Silhouette Studio. You can find my design right here. Be sure to mirror your image before cutting. Cut out the shadow and the text.
Step 2. Once your design is cut, weed the excess vinyl to reveal your design.
Step 3. Place the shadow of design on the apron first and cover it with a dishtowel. Iron it with a hot, dry iron according to your vinyl package directions until fully adhered.
Step 5. Place your fabric on the adhesive-side of your iron-on adhesive and cover with towel. Press with a hot, dry, iron until fully adhered. Then, peel back the fabric. You will know that the fabric has adhered if the side that was down is now shiny.
I love the modern feel of this apron. Not everyone wants a frilly picture of a cornucopia on their Thanksgiving apron, and this is one feels fresh. I love the added touch of the fabric that gives it a little extra interest. Plus, making pie sounds like a REALLY good idea.
After the baking is done, it’ll be time to set the table. These Thanksgiving place card holders are the perfect way to help your guests find their seats!
