Firstly, pick out an apron that you like. We found one at a local craft store, but you can find them at big box stores too.

Print the template onto the transfer paper. Make sure you pick the right paper for your apron colour. The transfer paper comes in packs for light or dark fabrics. We chose to make a black apron but this design would look great on white too. Follow the directions for printing on the package of the transfer sheets you bought. We used Jolee’s Boutique Easy Image and found them easy to use.

Tip: Be sure to trim the white paper away from around the design, otherwise there will be a big white square around the picture.
