How to Make Your Own “Whisky Business” Apron
You just need a few supplies to make your own punny apron.
“Whisky Business” Apron Supplies
- Blank Apron
- Heat Transfer / Iron On Vinyl (I used Siser Easyweed)
- Silhouette, Cricut, or other electronic cutting machine
- Weeding Tool
- Iron, EasyPress, or Heat Press
- My “Whisky Business” Cut File (Grab it from the link at the end of this post)
Step One. Prepare the Cut File and Cut the Design.
Start off by downloading the free cut file from the link at the end of this post. You will need to unzip the file first to access the different versions of the cut file. Next, open the cut file in your cutting machine software.
Once you have the design open in your cutting machine software, you will need to scale it to fit on your apron. I cut my design at about 7″ wide. Finally, because you are cutting your design from heat transfer vinyl, you will need to mirror (or horizontally flip) the design.
(P.S. If you are new to working with iron on, be sure to check out my beginner’s guide to heat transfer vinyl right HERE.)
Next, place your heat transfer vinyl shiny side down on your cutting mat (so you are cutting on the back side of the vinyl), load the mat into your machine, and send the design to your machine to cut.
Step Two. Remove Excess Vinyl.
Next, use your weeding hook (a straight pin or tweezers work well too) to peel off the excess vinyl from around the cut design. Don’t forget to grab all the little holes inside your letters!
Step Three. Iron on Design.
Next, it’s time to apply it to your apron! Simply flip the design over so it reads correctly and position it on your apron.
Then, with your iron set to the cotton setting and with the steam turned off, apply heat and pressure according to the application instructions for your vinyl. And finally peel off the carrier sheet to reveal your finished design!
And that’s it! What do you think? Do you know someone who could use a cute, punny apron?
