Last sunday, I made a hand-painted apron for my princess out of some burlap vintage curtain owned by my hubby's grandmother. The curtain is big and I could do many projects with it, yay! ^^)
I made the apron on the same day that I made this messenger bag for my Li'l Guy. To make this apron, I used:
kid-sized apron (I used one of my daughter's dress to create the apron pattern)
1" wide fabric strips, folded and ironed as you would a bias tape
some fabric paint
I laid the apron flat.
I took a plate and used it to create a rounded side on the apron's skirt.
I drew a butterfly on the apron using a fabric marker. I ironed it so the fabric markings will stay until I finish painting it.
I placed a cardboard at the back of the apron so the paint won't bleed. I started painting. I also added some pretty red flowers with leaves and some gold streaks.
Until I finished my desired design. I had to wait until the paint is dry enough.
I attached the bias all around the apron.
I also attached a wider bias tape for the ties on the hips. I also added some buttons on the center of the flowers ^^)
Tada! A pretty apron from a repurposed burlap curtain.
My princess brought it to school on monday morning as required by their teacher.
Li'l Guy also tried it on ^^)
I am linking to these parties!
