"Chef" Apron

This is an apron I personalized using fabric paint and the freezer paper stencil method:



The apron is for a thank you gift for Marica who is the artistic director of the Alumni of the Croatian Folklore Dance Group with which I'm involved. “Šef Kuhinje” is Croatian for “Kitchen Boss” or “Kitchen Chief”.  In addition, the Croatian letter “š” (an "s" with a caron diacritic) makes a “sh” sound and so the Croatian word “šef” sounds like English word “chef”.  Marica loves double entendres, so I thought this was totally appropriate for her.
Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression & Cricut CraftRoom Application
Cricut Lyrical Letters Cartridge (font)
Cricut CraftRoom Basis Cartridge (squares)
Reynolds Freezer Paper 
Red Apron (Wal-Mart)
Tulip Soft Fabric Paint
