I have a friend who is kind of a "princess" and he's having a birthday. He has chickens and he loves loves loves his chickens. He loves collecting their eggs. So why not make him a egg collection apron!
I searched Pinterest and Etsy to get some ideas on how to sew one up. Here's the Youtube video I watched to get idea how to make the apron https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCOEYO8ZchE. I bought some white aprons awhile ago and dug them out. White simple full size apron = perfect!
Lucky I had some T-shirt transfer paper!
I searched the Internet for a chicken image to iron-on the apron. (Original image is "Madonna and Egg - Ursnlav/Divantart) I deleted the background and enhanced the colors. Printed it up on the transfer paper and cut the image out. Ironed it on the apron.
The strips are 72 cm x 12 cm to make the pockets, cut 2 strips for 10 pockets total.
I cut the glitter fabric into 6 cm strips to use as the trim on the top of the pockets.
I pinned the pockets at the pencil marks to make the pleats. I pressed them to make it easier to baste in place.
I pressed all the edges to make it easier to sew in place on the apron. The tutorial actually make a half apron and the pockets were measured to fit the width of the apron so I ended with the edges just being tiny slot pockets...maybe for a pencil or snacks for the chickens?
So here's how the iron-on image and princess embellishment turned out. I say the perfect "chicken princess egg collector" apron!
Final product!!! OMG I love how it turned out!
Princess loved his new egg collecting apron! He really did even though he's not smiling.
