Love Chef Apron

How to create a love chef apron


I'm a lucky gal. My husband is the cook in our family. He actually enjoys cooking (this is great, since I do not). So, I thought this Love Chef apron would be the perfect gift for him. I provided a couple printouts so you can make your own apron!






Step 1

Choose which printout you’d like: Love Chef with a blue or pink heart? Once you pick it out, do a test run print on normal printer paper. Make sure the ink in your printer is printing correctly (plus, I always set my print quality to “best” when printing on transfer paper). ALSO: read the directions for your iron-on transfer paper. Do you have the proper printer for this paper?

Step 2

After your test print, print out your words onto the fabric iron-on transfers. Let this dry for a few minutes, then cut it out. Leave about 1/4 inch of "white space" around your printed design.


Step 3

Following the directions of your iron-on transfer paper, heat up your iron to the highest setting (steam turned off). Place a protective fabric barrier onto your floor or countertop (don't use an ironing board, since it's not sturdy enough).

Step 4

Place the wording exactly where you'd like it to go on the white apron (words face down). Iron-on the words (following the transfer paper instructions). Let it cool for a few minutes.

My apron would have to say "OOPS, that was glitter not pepper!" I am a glitteraholic and it gets on EVERYTHING!! One time I accidentally brought a salt shaker of black glitter to the kitchen and hubby used it on his food that night. I did not say a word but he commented that it was the best meal he had eaten in a long time. Guess it is true that glitter makes everything better!! LOL
