One day I was browsing through our local Dollar Store and saw these cute beige coloured muslin aprons, but silly girl that I am, didn't buy one. A few weeks later, I was thinking about what I would do for my September DT project and immediately thought of those Dollar Store aprons. I rushed down to get one, and yep, you guessed it, they were all gone! I was so disappointed, because I had big plans for that apron! Anyway, every time I went back to the store I would check out the craft isle hoping they would get in another shipment before my project was due. Every time I left disappointed. But, just this past week, they had some, only instead of being beige in colour they were black. I really didn't want a black one, but I bought one anyway and now I am so glad that I did!
I started this project by colouring the "Floppy Craft Bunny" image, which you can find right here in the Meljen's Shop, with my Copic Markers. Then, I matted it first onto black cardstock, then added a second matting of stripped DP, so it sort of looked like a card front.

I then scanned this into my computer and printed it on to transfer paper. [I just bought mine at Walmart]. Then using some iron on adhesive, [ the kind with the peel off paper backing], I adhered it to a piece of white muslin, following the directions on the package. [The white muslin helps to keep the colours bright]. After peeling off the paper backing, I positioned the image onto the front of the apron and again ironed it, adhering it to the apron front. To dress it up a bit, I sewed some pretty polka dot ribbon around the outside of the image and tied on some big red buttons with floss in each corner. I am really pleased with how it turned out. I love how it matches my Copic carrying case!What do you think?
