How to Make Stylish, Sassy Aprons

Aprons are an iconic housekeeping accessory. They make great gifts for bridal showers, hostess and house warmings, Mothers Day and more. 

When I put a saucy twist on these cheeky aprons, comments and emails came forth asking me how to DIY. So... I give you the tutorial!

You can just alter ready-made aprons for a quick and saucy project. Or, you can sew your own, like I did for my snarky Thanksgiving Apron.

Either way, you'll want to gather up lace, ribbon... trims, buttons, silk flowers, patches of colorful fabric, and...

For printing the images and quotes, I use June Tailor's colorfast fabric sheets for ink jet printers. {more info here}

Find images to fit the theme or holiday for your apron. {see resources on my sidebar. }

Use a program like word, pagemaker, or what-have-you to layer your desired image and quote. 

For some reason, my apron quotes tend to be sassy. {See the Coffee Apron *here*}

Probably because I have such an affinity for cooking and cleaning.

Once you've got your design, simply load a colorfast fabric sheet into your inkjet printer, and print as you would on a piece of paper. To make your printed fabric washable, follow the directions on the June Tailor package.

Arrange the elements on the apron in a way that pleases you and sew! Alternatively, if you're altering a ready-made apron, you could use fusible webbing to iron on the various elements and forgo the sewing.

Embellish your apron with a silk flower pin
