Personalized Polka Dotted Aprons: A How To

Grace has a wonderful kindergarten teacher who often wears aprons.  So awhile back when Grace wanted to give her a gift we decided to make her a “fancy” apron with her initial on it.
We started with a premade, canvass apron.

Then I drew out her initial on some copy paper and placed it where we thought it looked best on the apron:

And then we started to make dots!
The dots were easy to make we just squeezed the paint straight out of the bottle and through it’s tiny tip.

After we had enough dots surrounding the letter we removed the copy paper and all that was left was to let our apron dry.
It was easy and fun…and I love how the metallic polka dots looked!
It was a perfect gift (that you can pull together in a pinch!)
Happy Monday Everyone!

    How cute! I think this would make a great t-shirt decoration project. How did you get the paper to stick to the fabric so it didn’t slide around?

    Way cute. I completely forgot how much I want to get some of the beads in a bottle until I saw this. Now I have to find my Joann’s coupons. Love your blog.
