Embellish your own apron

{June 4, 2010}

by Dena


Cute aprons are one of my favorite accessories. Whether I'm wearing one at a dinner party or I've got it hanging as a decoration, they're just so fun. Having a Sizzix machine makes creating your own perfect apron a super quick and easy project. An apron embellishing party can be fun for kids, too, and can be customized to a theme, depending on which dies you are using. It's also a great way to reuse small scraps of fabric!

Gather:

  • Sizzix machine
  • Dies
  • Plain apron
  • Fabric scraps
  • Fabri-Tac glue
  • Needle and thread
  • Buttons and embellishments

Create:

  1. Lay the apron down and imagine how you would like it to look overall.
  2. Die cut fabric and arrange on your apron until you’ve it just right.
  3. Glue down your die-cut shapes with Fabri-Tac so they stay put.
  4. Using a needle and thread or a sewing machine, sew down the edges of your shapes to make sure they're secure.
  5. Glue or sew on buttons, pom-poms, ric-rac or any other embellishments to make the perfect apron.

For my apron, I used Sizzix Bigz Die – Flowers & Leaf.
