Hey everyone, welcome to the second day in my 12 days of Christmas series. Today I am sharing how easy it is to create the personalized aprons that I featured in my kids gingerbread house party. The DIY kids apron is so easy to make and you can whip it up in no time.
The first step is to open the Cricut Design Space and start a new project. Next you will need to click the text icon on the left had side of the screen, the font I chose to use is called Kate’s ABCs – Scallop. With this font is was easy to personalize each kids apron with their initial.
After choosing the font and typing out the initials that I wanted I sized each square to 5×5.Next you will click “make it” on the top right corner and make sure to MIRROR your image. Then follow the on screen prompts.Once your letters are cut out you will weed out the initial and that will leave you with the scallop square ready to iron. Place you apron on your ironing board and iron out the wrinkles, after the wrinkles are out place the iron on vinyl down on the apron. I put a thin fabric on top of the plastic liner and then began my ironing. After about 30 seconds of ironing, the vinyl was properly adhered. Each iron may be different so make sure to follow the instructions that come with the iron on vinyl for more help. Tip: when peeling away the liner carefully see if it is all correctly ironed on if a piece of vinyl lifts off place the liner back and iron it some more.How easy was that and now you are left with a nice and personalized party favor for your little guests.I hope you enjoyed this super easy DIY kids apron tutorial. Until next time and happy crafting!!!First day of Christmas
