My DIY Doctor Who and Hobbit Aprons

I love to be in the kitchen and am a big fan of aprons. They come in so handy when you are creating a delicious but messy masterpiece.  Not to mention, us ladies look so cute in aprons! Try one on for yourself and see how feminine, pretty and dainty you feel.

Hobby Lobby sells aprons for $4.99 (plain) and $8.99 (has ruffles.) Don’t forget your 40%-one-item coupon every time you visit Hobby Lobby! Of course, I had to make a Doctor Who apron and a Hobbit apron.

This is the Hobbit diet. Or pretty much the diet of all tween and teen boys. “What about second breakfast?”

For the Hobbit apron, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the famous words in heat transfer vinyl.  This is what heat transfer vinyl looks like as you are pulling away the excess material.

I have found that the easiest and fastest way to iron the material onto the fabric is to crank up your iron as high as it will go, iron your material lightly so it is warm, place your heat transfer words on the material – plastic side up of course, place a very thin piece of shipping paper, also known as mailing paper or packing paper over the plastic, and press down hard with your iron for 10 seconds. The heat transfer vinyl that I buy only needs 10 seconds. Then peel off the plastic slowly, place the shipping paper back over the words and iron again.

Now onto the Doctor Who apron…

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out shapes in adhesive vinyl. The 5 foods are an apple, a banana, a stalk of celery, a slice of bread, and a cup of custard with 2 fish sticks sticking out. Doctor Who fans will know the significance of these foods. Fish fingers and custard can be explained in this absolutely hilarious clip. If you’re not a Doctor Who fan, there is a strong chance you will be after watching this clip. This was Doctor #11’s very first scene.

Yes, we actually have eaten fish fingers and custard (fish sticks and pudding here in America.) It is really not that bad.  Anyway, back to the apron.

I used fabric paint to fill in all the shapes and words. I let it dry overnight and woke up in the morning to find several characters admiring my work.
